Old Houses

These cards were made using a photo stamp by Darkroom Door called Country Cottage. I've named the title of my post Old Houses because this house is just like some of the ones you see around this district on the older cattle properties and cane farms.
I must give credit to a very talented lady called Lisa Somerville. This is the card that inspired me to make the four cards below.

Once again, I used Versafine ink to stamp these images. The first two in Sepia and the bottom two in black with green brushed around the edges. All the edges have been distressed lightly to accentuate the 'country' feel of them. The purple/red weathered paint look paper is by Paper Inklings and the green/black paper is from Basic Grey's Origins range.

It's been sunny here again today but there is quite a breeze blowing. A bit of cloud around but it doesn't look like rain at this stage. Yesterday was reasonably productive and I hope to get some more cards done this afternoon.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day.
