I've been round in circles with this card and it nearly didn't make it to the finish line.
This week's challenge at 52CCT is a colour challenge - Green and White.
I wanted to use this house so I didn't even think of any other ideas and I've managed not to use any other colours.
I started with the oval, still having ovals in my head from last week. I just went round the outside of the shape with a ball tool to gently emboss the oval then stamped through a mask made with the same shape cutter. I used thin magazine paper, thanks Diane for the tip.
I've had various issues, including yellow snow! I added Stickles to the roof and top of the door for snow but where it touched the green ink it turned yellow. I managed to scrape it off again so it doesn't look too bad. (But not perfect, which is what I aspire to).
Then I was mounting it up on a square card. I had the background paper and ribbon all in place and had glued the picture when I decided that it was all wrong and pulled it off again. Instead I've gone very simple with just a green matt and small card. It is only about 13cm tall. I may now have to make an envelope to fit but I do have a green background all ready for some other card.
The house stamp is from Polka Doodles and I couldn't make up my mind about a sentiment so didn't add one.
