Simple but Colourful

I wanted to try something a little different here. I make loads if cute and pretty cards but these are not to everyone's taste. I think it is important to push myself out of my comfort zone in order to progress my skills

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

Supplies used

Travel And Adventure About Town Stamp Set by Paper Discovery 
White Paper For Stamping
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Spectrum Noir Finese Ink Pad in Noir Black
Dovecraft Lost and Found Paper Pad
Paper Discovery Build a Card Panel Dies
1 Piece A4 Green card


The houses from the stamp set were stamped in a line, suitable to fit in a slim line card base . These were coloured using a mixture of both Spectrum Noir illustrators and Tri blends.
This was cut out in a fancy shape using the scan n cut and a piece of patterned paper was cut in the same shape but 1/4 Inch larger.  The two were glued together.

The green card was cut to 6 Inch and the panel die used to cut the tiny squares.

The same patterned paper was then taped behind the panel.

The image was adhered to the front
