While I can't share the actual challenge details, I can share how I made this card. The stenciled background was made using gesso and distress ink. I keep confusing gesso with modeling paste...oh well, it doesn't really matter - there are NO rules in art (and they are both white, same shaped pot, made by the same company - any wonder I mix them up).
The little houses are a digi stamp, printed onto photocopy paper and then coloured with Prismacolour Pencils and highlighted with Spectrum Noir pens and Copics. Colouring on the el cheapo paper is a dream and it's super easy to fussy cut - I may never buy blending cardstock again!!
I chose this title because Splitcoaststampers is like a village to me. Thank you to everyone who contributes their time and shares their creativity to make this a truly wonderful place.
