Everything Wendy Vecchi MAC #42

Since the slow return of my creative juices has continued, I ducked into my inks again for the Making Art Challenge #42 over at the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo! Group.  Creative List Mama Extraordinaire, Lori, challenged the group to MAKE ART modeled after a project in Wendy's third book, page 36...make a tag with a house on it. Use of at least one stamp from the amazing Studio 490 is, of course, a must.

EWV MAC #42: House Fun
I just picked up my Spring seasonal Distress Ink set and I've fallen in love with the lovely colors!  Decided I'd ink up my tag with Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac, added in a wee bit of Tumbled Glass and "voila!".  Followed up with a light stamping of a Wendy background (from Celestial Art) in Broken China. Since the theme this week involves a house, I embossed the tag with one of Lord Tim's Sizzix folders that has great architectural details. Hit the high spots with some Dried Marigold and Gathered Twigs.

The house is a Wendy original from the Residential Art set.  Stamped it twice, once on a solid background of Dried Marigold and the second on a Peacock Feathers background. Reverse stamped onto some metallic brown paper to cut out a mat.  Then , I cut the door out of the marigold version and mounted it on the peacock one to create a 3 layer house.  I was playing with my Rock Candy Distress Stickles, so I outlined the roof and the door with it.  Stamped "Important Stuff" (Journal Art) on a little dried marigold scrap.  "This Side Up" (from Label it Art) stamped & embossed across the bottom--both directions. ;-)

Brads, spinner & metal flower from Tim Holtz Alterations.  "Family" acrylic from the $1 bin at AC Moore (SCORE!!).  Twill sticky words, sheer orange flower and ribbons from my stash.

Next Challenge will be issued tomorrow bright & early...join the fun and go MAKE ART!!
