New home

Posted by on October 23, 2011 in Challenges, Digistamp | 14 comments

Hi everyone,

These houses are digi stamps from the DigiStamp Boutique from a set called New Home Collection. I have had them for ages and haven’t used them until now! It is for a friend of mine who has just moved. How exciting!

I used Adobe Illustrator to line the houses up in a row before printing them off and colouring them in with Copic markers. I went a little overboard with the colours – but I wanted to try out some new colours that I recently got for my birthday from my Hubby :-). I like the whimsical look – who wouldn’t want to live in a street like this? I am entering this into the DigiStamp Boutique October Competition.

I also did a little experimenting with Copics – I went for a brick look here on the end house. The clouds were made by masking with a post-it note and a sponge dauber.

My favourite is the spotty purple house – complete with Glossy Accent windows.
