a little Eye Candy..

This is one of my NEW favorite stamps.... it's the type of stamp that you know exactly what you want to do with it when you see it.  I had the idea of stacking the buildings so they look dimensional...

I stamped it three times with black ink on white cardstock, cut out portions and painted with Distress inks: Broken China, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Barn Door and Walnut Stain. Once everything was painted, I reassembled the pieces onto my card with foam tape.


Enjoy your day!!!

Such a cute stamp! I've been on doing a self imposed "use your stash challenge" and haven't bought anything in forever. Only 12 more things to go and I am so about any stamp with houses involved! :-)
