Chunky Houses by Lori!

Hi all! I was so honored to be asked to contribute to the Artistic Stamper Creative Team! There is truly so much talent here!

For my first project, I thought I would use Kat's Creations stamps..more specifically, the Our House A6 set.  Along with...Borders A6, which is in the background, hard to see, but it's there!  I chose to create a chunky ATC for my project, which is a dimensional ATC cut from a chunk of wood.  I sprayed the plain block of wood with Dylusions inks, which I love doing on bare wood, the wood grain really comes through and looks fantastic. I then stamped the houses and sentiment on white cardstock, then painted with the Dylusions inks! When I glued the houses on the wood, I used some foam behind the roofs and doors, to give them some more dimension. How about some pictures?
I did cut out some leaves from grungepaper and glued them on, after painting with a Citrus Paint Dabber.


Here's a little different angle, showing more of the top:
I painted some plain wooden plugs with the Watermelon Paint Dabber for the "feet" or base, to raise it up a bit.
I just love using the bright colors with the Our House stamp set, the stamps were meant for color!
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I've inspired you to make some "chunky ATC's"!
