A Class with Sue Roddis














I thoroughly enjoyed making this at the weekend - it was at a class run by Sue Roddis at The Stamp Attic. Called Up My Street, we made three chipboard house shapes which we covered with ripped up book pages. There followed a happy afternoon splatting them with Distress Inks and spraying with water and getting in a complete mess - what fun!! The houses were then joined together and a kind of fence added on the back.

I think I started off with some kind of colour scheme, which then got lost, because the wonderful thing about Distress inks is that they all go together anyhow. I added a few bits of metal, and a feather - loving the Stampotique stamps, they're completely barking mad......




























Some of the stamps got scribbled on along the way....
