The Art of Fiddle Fart At It’s Finest – New House Card!

Picture 025
I surpassed myself today fiddle farting!
The houses are made using a small house punch (I think it came from Hobbycrafts) – but it wasn’t enough for me to just stick them onto a blank card, no, I had to doodle the details on each one using a very fine liner pen  and then colour them in very roughly with pale colours from my Whispers pen set!

….. this was after I stuck a small panel of card behind each house so I could have a door to colour in as well!

I also made the back panel using two strips of textured  paper.

To finish the card I added a few clouds in the sky using a white gel pen and a fence, using a black fine liner pen.

How funny, if I'd seen this punch in a shop I wouldn't have bothered ... now I'm going to go out of my way to find it. Thank you so much for a lovely card :)
