We're Playing Housey, Housey At That's Crafty!

Hello again and welcome to my inspiration for the new challenge starting today at That's Crafty Challenge Blog which has the theme of

I've been playing in my A5 size journal again for this and have inked up a new set of Carabelle Studio stamps which I couldn't resist - see if you can spot why!

I started off by stamping the buildings, sign post image and the quirky sun with Archival Jet Black ink directly on the journal page. They're from the Carabelle Studio Zintenkia by Azoline set.

As you can see I have a couple of smudges on there but I don't think they show on the completed page so if it happens to you, just go with it!
I added colour to the stamped images with Promarkers and coloured pencils. I then applied Cracked Pistachio, Crushed Olive, Fossilized Amber and Salty Ocean Distress inks to the page using the lightest shades around the stamped images.
I then stamped on some of the quirky floral images from the Carabelle Studio Ombrelines Aux Pistils by Azoline with the green and yellow Distress inks onto the page, stamping some twice before re-inking.
To finish I added a Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker which I cut up and drew on the little hearts with a fine black pen. Can you see where I wrote on the sign?
Did you spot the reason why I had to have this stamp set - there's  tiny Eiffel Tower at the top and my dream is still to go to Paris.

Have a great weekend.
