A little crooked house


Morning Peeps, time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week I am your host and I have a theme with an optional twist, it's 'Anything Goes' with the option to take inspiration from this weeks prize, a recent new release A4 stamp set from Rare Earth

My top piece is inspired by the prize and is an A5 canvas, lots of paint and ink, crackle glaze and a Kim Moody House stamp made for a Hochanda TV show a while back. The rhyme is computer generated and some inked chipboard leaves and toadstools.


My second piece has a Distress Ink background, Inkylicious Poppies, Penny Black floral stems and  sentiment all stamped with Verafine Clair.

I do hope you will join us this week and wish you all a lovely weekend.

It's a fabulous canvas Brenda, and a brilliant idea to use the nursery rhyme with this image, some little girl would love this.
Gorgeous coloured sky with the poppies and it's a lovely verse.

Two fantastic creations, great image and how well it fits the old nursery rhyme (if it was a nursery rhyme) but I remember it well, lovely background and colours.
Another super background and lovely images.

How fun rhyme in the first card and the crackle texture with the sun rays give a special effect to the house scene! A very unique design!
LOVE so much the second card, my favourite! The blending on the background is just perfect and so vibrant, the poppies and stems have a fabulous feel and the dimensional butterfly looks just amazing!
Hope that the sun is shining in your garden, there are a lot of things to do in this season... :) I have put seeds and plants for the winter just today.
Hope also that you are well and enjoy your weekend.
Hugs

The canvas is gorgeous, Brenda, I love the crackle and the subtle colouring. The house is very quaint too! Great work shading the sunrays on the second card, it's a beautiful sunset background. Enjoying the last of the summer rays this weekend! x

I love the crooked house canvas Brenda. We have perfectly straight walls in our 1990s house now and although it is bright and airy I miss the old farmhouse with it's quirky angles and inglenook fireplace xx

Greta said...

Love these, Brenda! The first one is really fun using that nursery rhyme I always liked!

Marlies said...

A lovely canvas Brenda and a very good idea with the verse. Wasn't there a song about a crooked man? or is it a nursery ryme? I know I've heard it before. Your sencond card is beautiful too. Very elegant and lovely warm colours. Marlies x
