Sunday Stampers Week 202 - Summer in the City

Hello Blog Friends

Does anyone else like the work of the artist Michael Powell?  He has been known mostly for his cross-stitch designs but I was out looking for more new stash (which I don't need but want) to feed my habit and came across his stamps in the Papermania range and just had to have one.  His designs are quirky, colourful and a bit mad (like I would love to be but don't have the nerve!).

I got out my distress markers and pads and set about colouring it.  I have used happy, summery colours to fit in with the challenge (over at Hels Sheridan's blog http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ ),  the background paper is by BoBunny - Country Garden collection.  The ribbon is coloured with wild honey distress stain and I added a key and the sentiment Home Sweet Home as I thought it would be ideal as a new home card.

I think this house could be in the country or the city so I thought it fitted the challenge.  Hope you think so too.



You should be able to see it better if you click on the picture.  I did try to do a close up using OH's camera but it was too blurry to show.

If you do stop by, I hope you will leave me a comment and I always try to return the favour.  Thank you!  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  14. Oh Anne, I need that house for my altered book (grin). It is awesome. And the way you colored it was simply perfect and so springish, too (if that's a word).

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I've seen my friend wear that tee-shirt before, but still don't know what it means or stands for. Guess I should try to find out!! Maybe I should ask her. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  15. Gorgeous piece! So much detail to look at which I love. I really like your background and the stamp is fab. Don't camera's just annoy you at times? Just as you think you've got it - it all goes wrong! Clicking on your picture showed the details beautifully.
