#ECStrong Card

The last time I posted a card using this house stamp, I asked for suggestions on how else to color it (I seem to see it as a tan stucco house…ALL.THE.TIME.). Miss Hammie suggested that I try coloring it like the Painted Ladies in San Francisco. Great suggestion. I was prepping for vacation, never executed the idea.

Fast forward to this weekend’s flooding in Historic Ellicott City. Offspring3 told me (on Messenger from Spain…) that I needed to get my house stamp out and create an Ellicott City card.

I stamped the house on watercolor paper using different colors of dye ink, then used an aqua brush to move some of the color around.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, JustRite, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Basic Gray, inks – Stampin’ Up! Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Red Riding Hood (retired), Wisteria Wonder, VersaFine Onyx Black, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
