Times 3 Challenge

When I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I could visualise it the window stamp and the brick stamp to give it the appearance of a house. It was going to be great!! So I whent through my stamps to pull out the ones I would need and beleive it or not... I don't actually own the brick stamp... I have so many in a wish list and so many in my stamp collection that I can't keep track anymore. Well... I improvised.

Here is my card:

I used Bamboo, Kraft and White cardstock and Sweetheart patterned paper. The stamp set is Flower Pot D1409 and the ink is Chocolate, Bamboo, and Topiary.

I started by creating the scalloped strips with Kraft cardstock using the corner rounder. Inked the edges in Chocolate and assembled. I then stamped the image of the window in the middle of my card and cut out the window part. I stamped the flowers on the inside of the card through the stamped window.

Since I didn't have that brick stamp. I used the pen tip end of my blending pen and the Bamboo ink pad and free handed bricks here and there on my card.

I stamped and cut out the shutters and the flowers and added small Licorice Adhesive Gems.
