I recently won a challenge at Jade's Sparkling Butterflies and the prize was 3 images from Ching-Chou Kuik . I had never heard of them but was happy to have won....and boy am I glad I did!!! I just discovered a new place to get digis!!! For this card I used one of the images I won. It's called Pug Love . My husband thinks it looks like me and our little Zaq, so I decided to make a birthday card for him with it :)
What you are looking at is the outside of the house. I cut a window with my Cuttlebug using a Sizzix square die, then made the window frame with Gina Marie Designs stitched square die, and used a piece of acetate for the glass. So she is looking out her window.
The images on the outside of the house are from 2 different stamp sets. The flower pot on the left is part of Gina K. "Plant Trio" stamp, and the rest is part of Art Impressions "Try"Folds "Garden" set.
I colored the images with Inktense watercolor pencils, and added CTMH Liquid Glass to the watering can for some shine and pop, as well as adding it to the bird bath to give the effect of water. I drew faint lines across the "house" giving the effect of siding.
Here is a view of the entire image.
I absolutely LOVE this image and couldn't wait to use it!!!
