Compendium of Curiosities - Home Sweet Home

Almost under the wire again this weeks for Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge.  This weeks challenge is Distress Stickles.  I thought they'd be perfect with the Doodles and Daters plate from Paperbag Studios.

The houses are stamped in Black Archival on Glossy card stock, then using Eclipse Tape, I masked the houses to be able to add various colors of Distress Inks to color the houses. 

Details:
Stamps - Paperbag Studios
Ink - Black Archival, Distress Inks Peeled Paint, Broken China, Spiced Marmalade, Brick Red, Mustard, Stormy Sky, Shabby Shutters, Brushed Corduroy
Card Stock - Glossy, Black, Summer Sun, Taken with Teal
Other - Distress Stickles Spiced Marmalade, Rock Candy, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Ink Blending Tool, Craft Sheet

Oh, COOL! (I said that out loud, so loudly that my guy downstairs asked what I was talking about)! I absolutely LOVE these houses, and the brilliant way you masked and "Stickle-ized" them is just wonderful! Great colors and a completely cool design, Lisa!

I really like the houses, and it's a clever switch from the standard glitter usage.
