The Theme this month over at Elisabeth Bells World is "New Beginnings" Soooo, with that in mind, I decided that I would create something for a new home owner, rather than a baby, or a marriage etc... Sooo I started thinking about what I could do.... This is what I came up with.
Closer to the door you can see "Evania - Door Bell Chime" from Elphine House Australia, although, I did edit this stamp. I have cut away the door, and the flower pot, but I made sure to keep Evania and her little kitty. She's a perfect fit, don't you think? The stamp that I used for my sentiment also was licensed to Belles 'n Whistles, it was one of the Changeabelles sets, this one is the Tulips from the "Wedding - Tulips - Phone set" I just love those little accessories. =)
I used Gesso to prepare my candy cartons for painting, then I painted them with your basic craft paint. The lines for the boards on the house are just pencil... and I purposely didn't want them to be a perfect line, or perfectly lined up... I like the random look much better. The grass was actually paper "Easter Grass". Of course I needed to top this with Modge Podge in order to make sure it all stayed or I'd probably lose some pieces of grass here and there. My darling stamps were colored with Prisma Color Pencils.....
