Welcome back to another Art Impressions challenge post! I'm loving the add ons to the Holiday Mansion Set! Now, I'm not normally one to say that I like clowns, but at least Art Impressions made this guy look so friendly! I worked with the HM Birthday set and used almost all of the stamps and dies. I like that the dies come with the stamps so there is no having to buy those separately.
My first steps to make this were to stamp all the elements I was going to be using then coloring them. Then use all of the coordinating dies to cut them out. The Mansion has 2 doors that are cut and scored so that they can open but I didn't use those elements in this design. However if you have not checked out the rest of the design teams projects, you should! Art Impressions House or Cottage Challenge Plus join in on the challenge!
After I had cut and colored I watercolored the background. I used some Distress Inks to do this because they are quick and easy. There is a lot to take in with this fun house and I thought a simpler background would fit it well. I used Mowed Lawn for the grassy area then a bit of Tumbled Glass in the sky. I let that dry then used Hickory Smoke and Pumice Stone to make the cloud of smoke come up from the chimney.
I used a gray cardstock and mounted the watercolor piece to that then attached to a 9'' x 4'' Neenah 110lb Solar White card base, which makes this a long card! I don't do these often but they are fun.
Then I fussy cut the house and and adhered a piece of light yellow cardstock behind it so that the windows glowed. I wrote in the letters on the banner and adhered everything down. After that all I had to do was stamp the sentiment in the smoke cloud using some dark gray ink.
