The background was painted with Salty Ocean, Bundled Sage with a smidge of Victorian Velvet DPs and a smudge of Adirondacks Paint Dabber in Citrus. The clouds were made by lifting the wet paint with a dry wet-wipe (yeah - I know - an oxymoron!). I think that's what I love most about Distress Paints - I can dilute them right down and use as 'watercolours*' without loosing any intensity of colour. The foreground was stamped onto tissue paper and coloured with DMs before being Glue 'n' Sealed. The houses were stamped onto white Canford card (love Canford card!), coloured with DMs and cut out, along with the two sentiments which were coloured with Salty Ocean and Peeled Paint DIs around their edges.
(* Before I got into Crafting I was very much a watercolour/pen and ink /pastel girl with occasional forays into the worlds of oils and acrylics! Now I'm definitely a 'Mixed Media (mixed up) artist!)
Then the fun started!
I think I spent as much time, if not more, arranging them!
When I had my final layout, they were all turned over very carefully and numbered!
All in all, I'm rather pleased with this!
The Stamps I used are from one set (perhaps I should've set that as a mini me challenge too!) They are the gorgeous 'Home Sweet Home' by Kathleen Fullman
I would like to enter this for the following challenges:

Thanks for looking!
Bye bye from me xx
