House ATC

For the Mixed Media ATC group I am part of, the challenge was houses. Now my mind could have gone to home and a lovely twee little homestead, but no .... Off I go to outhouses ! LOL I love this stamp from Impression Obsession called His and hers, and use it at every opportunity :
Hahahahahaha did you fall off your seat in shock and laughter ? I know it amused me greatly :) I freely admit at this point to having a weird sort of toilet humour !

The background is done with Lindy's Stamp Gang starburst sprays, with some white acrylic and dry wall tape added. See the white bottom right ? Thats toilet paper ... True ! LOL

The outhouse is colored using Neocolor II's and kroma crackle added to the door, and a brad for the handle. I added a layer of acrylic ground for pastels and sanded it a little to get a rough and distressed look. I wrote the sentiment and outlined the house in white gel pen and mounted the finished front onto white card stock.

 I made four of these ATC's in total and they are all slightly different. On some I added tissue paper for the flowers at the side of the door. I really liked how the colors worked this and the rough and distressed feel against the smooth and shiny background. L:ots of contrast :)

Thanks for stopping by x
