How lucky was I to be able to buy a sheet of the brand new Paper Artsy stamps yesterday :O)) They are called "Bricks & Mortar" from the Squiggly Ink Range and the sheet I bought is No1.
I actually really love all the range and I think I will be saving up to buy them all very soon!
For this project, I cut a Gothic Arch shape from card and using a babywipe, I blended Adirondack Ink Stonewashed and Wild Plum over the surface. A quick blast with the heatgun to dry the inks up and then I stamped the little house and the swirly image onto the arch. I then inked up some more cardstock and stamped the roof of the house using Wild Plum and cut this out. I stuck the top of the roof directly onto the arch and popped 3D foam onto the bottom of the roof to make it looked like it was sloping.
Next, I stamped the sentiment onto the coloured cardstock, I cut this out and then cut it into three, tearing the right hand edges of these pieces and edging with black ink. I used 3D foam to attach these to the arch too. I used another piece of the coloured cardstock and stamped the ruler and attached this to the top of the arch. Finally, I stamped and cut out the heart image and 3Dd this onto the window in the house and edged the whole arch in black ink.
I am really pleased with this arch, love the stamps and the colours I have used. I need to find a stamp of a garden gnome cos I think this will be fab to sit in the window in the house!
Thanks for looking
