Housey Housey by Donna Gray

Hello everyone,

Donna here today and I’m using one of the new Paperartsy stamps. As soon as I saw this set I knew I had to have it…anything house related is my favourite!


This is what I did: 

I used a wooden door hanger for this but you can use anything, even a large tag. I covered the door hanger with a mixture of DecoArt paints. I chose the bright, vibrant colour as I wanted the house to stand out against the background.
I stamped the house onto thick card and coloured with ProMarkers and then highlighted with a white Sharpie pen. I also added Glossy Accents at the end to the windows to give them a glassy effect.
I then used a little tree stamp I have and blotted some white paint on the background to suggest clouds.
Next came some balloon die cuts but you can easily just punch/cut circles out for the balloons…..now you can see where we are going with this….very UP!
Of course I had to put the little cheeky PaperArtsy birdies on there too, coloured with more ProMarkers. The sentiment is from a stamp of mine but you can use whatever you want or computer generate something.
So there you have it, a really fun way to use a new stamp ;)
