Inspired by Kristina Werner Day 1!!

Hello!!

I'm SUPER excited to be presenting you with Day 1 of our Inspired by Kristina Werner week!

Here is the card that Kristina created:

 Super cute and kinda Swedish huh?! I love the simplicity.

SO, for mine, I had a bit of a challenge as I didn't have ANY of the products Kristina used and so I had to go on the hunt for something suitable.

This is what I came up with.
 It's VERY different from my usual style and I'll admit, I struggled a bit.

For the most part, this card is pretty self explanatory. However, if you have any questions, please let me know.

To colour these little houses in (which are from Hero Arts "Mi Casa" set, I stamped the ink onto my craft sheet and then used them as watercolour paint. Because they weren't distress inks, they didn't blend as much, but I wanted a darker colour, so I was happy with the result!

Here are the products I used:

Both of these cards are super cute. Did you do the stitching on the 2nd card by hand. It so so wonderful and adds such a nice touch to the card.
