Painted Lady

Hello friends, happy Saturday to you all!  Our household is settling back into some form of routine after a week of family and celebrations - and a house full to varying degrees,  I have missed The Studio but have had some productive time in there...

My DH has been doing a little renovating in the house - I have tried it on paper on the Spellbinders Painted Lady - how beautiful is she.  I have to be honest and say the card stock I had cut it in looked very bright for the look I wanted - hence the renovations! Wink:wink!!

I have sponged over the majority of the Painted Lady using Imagine Memento Luxe in Wedding Dress to soften the turquoise, added Memento Rhubarb Stalk over some of the trim....and flower braid along the windows - I love the touch that it adds - sometimes it really is the little things that make all of the difference.  The house has been popped up onto Kraft card stock, followed by recycled corrugated card stock using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LE-Z Adhesive Runner.  The layers have been adhered to the pre-cut card base.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
