Three - for Crafty Boots

The theme this fortnight, for Crafty Boots' challenge, is 'three of something'.

Wasn't sure what to do, then caught sight of a stamp set from Paperbagstudios which has 3 houses.... hmmm.

I painted a journal page with Fresco paint (mermaid, new from last weekend's haul!) Stamped the 3 houses on white paper (well, thin card) and coloured them with distress inks (I always mean to colour the card first then stamp on top....) and decided to cut them out rather than have them in a straight row.

You'll have to forgive my atrociously drawn 'long and winding roads' - I am no artist that's sure..  The little people returning home are by Stampscapes. Wonder which house they'll go to..........!

Come and see what the rest of the team have done and please join in at Crafty Boots.
