Brayered House on the Point

This house stamp from De reminds me of the homes that are built on the fingers of land that jut out into the bay where I grew up.

I stamped the image with Versacolor black ink and clear embossed it on Xerox Heavyweight Matte card stock. I added some color to the grass, land and boat with my LePlume markers, then clear embossed over them again.

Masking the moon and the horizon, I began brayering with Adirondack Lights Cool Peri for the sky. The next layer was Denim with the last being Purple Surf.

Reversing my horizon mask and adding another masked moon, I brayered the water with Lights Ocean Aqua, followed with Stream and Purple Surf.

The last steps were to add the branches framing the scene; the birds and the boater are from Stampscapes. The finished size is 5.5 x 8 inches.

Nice Scene Sandy. I'd like to be living in that house and have the water a short distance away. This looks like a photograph. Just Perfect.
