I took a break from picking faucets, doors, brick and shingles, and thinking about how I want the cabinets to look to play in the color inspiration at www.kwernerdesign. It was a relief. Check out the house progress. At first I didn't really like the card I stamped. but it is starting to grow on me. I was trying some background techniques, and this one is Faux Linen. The bird is stamped in Burgundy on glossy paper then sanded vertically and horizontally until the gloss is gone. Then I sponged Soft Sky over the whole paper. I think it should show up better, so next time I will try higher grit sandpaper. In person it looks much better. For my next trick I cut the back off one of the new flower brads and glued it to the top of the bow square.
I appreciate you looking. Let me know what you think!
