Who Says I Only Do Dark and Grungy...

I've loads of stuff I want to blog at the moment but I'm going to start with this ever so funky little house that I've finished today instead of doing the housework (tut tut...)



 I started it a while ago by painting and spraying the house then adding texture paste to the roof and painting that blue when it had dried - I also started choosing and stamping characters to live in my world of colour - they are all Stampotique and are stamped in Archival black then sprayed generously with Dylusions, Colourwash and Perfect Pearls Mists - even the patterning on the letters is Stampotique - from Angel Boy's wings!!! Most of the decorating has been done today - it's totally out of character but I loved creating it! The little bouquet started out white and got a good spraying and the lightbulb at the top is an Idea-ology one which I coloured with purple alcohol ink. I'm entering it into The Stampotique Challenge (Colourful theme) and Simon Says Stamp and Show (Anything Goes theme). Hope you like it - it certainly cheers me up! JulieD x

  4. Very cool shadow box! I love bright colors that you've used and all of your little "treasures" that you've tucked inside. Your sentiment...FILL THE WORLD WITH COLOR...is perfect! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
