Many of you already know that i am currently moving house. Not far just 10 minutes from my current location. We are moving to Beaumont Hills and are just upsizing a little and moving closer to where my kids will go to school in the future.
A lovely family with 2 young children very similar in age to mine have bought our current house and i made this card to leave here for them (along with all the instructions on the appliances and the keys etc etc).
I have used the Neighbourhood Jumbo Wheel which i have inked up with Staz On Black and rolled onto Watercolour Paper. I have tried a few different watercolour papers now and agree with alot of the other people that Stampin' Up's is the best quality. You just can't make watercolouring look anything but good on this paper!
I have used my watercolour pencils and coloured in the houses. If you look really closely you can see that on the bushes i have actually punched out some Old Olive cardstock with my Boho Blossoms punch and stuck them on with dimensionals.
I have used the car from the Loads of Love stamp set and the furniture from the Loads of Love Accessories, these have also been watercoloured. The greeting is from the accessories set and i have used the 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches and popped it up on Dimensionals.
I have used some different colours this time. Not Quite Navy is the card base. It is one of my favourite colours but i don't use it as often as i should. It is teamed with Old Olive and Basic Grey is the colour of the road base.
I hope the people in this new house enjoy it as much as we did. I'm a little sad but my husband keeps telling me to see it as a new beginning not an ending.... we will see!
