Hanging Art House for Creative Expressions

I really fancied making something that I could hang up using my Art House stamps this week from Creative Expressions. Here's my little Art House hanging, with its ultra thick embossing powder finish.


I started off colouring my house with TH Distress Markers


I stuck the house onto chipboard then cut it out. Then double embossed with ultra thick embossing powder, for a nice glossy finish. I punched some holes in the house on the top and the bottom using my Crop-A-Dile and fed some ball chain in the bottom and a key chain on the top. 


I used the TH Distress Markers to ink up my compass stamp, then spritzed it with water and stamped it onto my card, (love the grungy compass), then stamped the sentiment with black Archival. I stuck this to some chipboard and cut out the sentiment. I also double heat embossed clear ultra thick embossing powder on the front and waited for it to cool before making my holes to attach it to the house.

I also attached a TH metal key hole embellishment with wire to finish off the hanging base.


I don't use my Distress Markers nearly enough, I love this effect!
Mental note....I must use them more......
I'll be making a canvas this weekend, what will you be getting up to?
