Clean And Simple Challenge #29

This is my card for yesterday's Clean and Simple Challenge:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=455339

I took my inspiration from the cute pair of red shoes on page 4 of New Arrivals (even my DH said Oh that's a nice shoe).

I used this adorable new release NICE NEIGHBORHOOD from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS LLC: http://www.cleardollarstamps.com/

WHAT I DID: I stamped the middle house first centered near the bottom, then stamped the other two lining up straight. I have an acrylic block that has a grid on it, this helped to line it up. I stamped another house on white CS, colored it red in places, and cut it out. Before adhering my red house with dimensionals I sponged. First I cut out a rectangle that was smaller than the width of the card using my coluzzles. This gave me a template, using what was left after taking the rectangle out. I held this down where I wanted it, highlighting my middle house, and sponged using first bashful blue (wasn't strong enough for me) so then I sponged over it with Pacific Point (I liked that better). Then I adhered my red house using dimensionals. Finished it off with my skinny ribbon along the fold and tied in a knot at the top.

Thank you for visiting.
