Poppystamps Challenge 11--The Heat is On


I'm joining Poppystamps Challenge 11, mainly because I wanted to play with
a Poppystamps die that I haven't used before--Brevilla Houses. Here's my card.


The challenge is The Heat is On and it looks like I concentrated the heat onto the rooftops!
After die cutting the houses from watercolor paper, I used a waterbrush to brush water
on the top portion of the houses then colored over with Zig Clean Color markers.

I blended the colors with water and let the ink fade on the bottom. I love that the doors
on the die cut piece actually swing open--how cute is that? I randomly popped out
some of the windows and left others intact for visual interest.


The houses were popped up on the bottom of Grout Gray card stock and I added
a strip of dark gray diagonal stripes on the bottom. The sentiment is from
Neat and Tangled and the tiny heart is from my stash of die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a cool weekend!
