Quaint Church

Thia stamp makes me think of home. We are not very religious people and do not attend church but on the hill above our village is an impressive church some parts of which date back to the 13th Century. As you drive down the winding country road, the bell tower some how brings a sense of home. If the weather is bad and it is foggy the church is often the first visual you get of the village.

There is a video on my YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Supplies used

Travel And Adventure About Town Dtamp Set by Paper Discovery 
White Paper For Stamping
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

The scene was created using a number of  stamps from the set.These were coloured using a mixture of both Spectrum Noir illustrators and Tri blends.

This was cut out in a fancy shape. The backing paper was then cut 1/2 Inch larger

The black card was cut to 10 Inch by 5 Inch and scored at 5.
The patterned paper and stamped image were glued to the front 

A piece of patterned paper 4 3/4 Inch square was adhered to the inside
