Sunday Stampers - String

To check out the Sunday Stampers challenge pop over to Hels Each Sunday Hels sets a new challenge based on song titles.  This week's song is Puppet On A String, but you only need to make something and include some string.  I cut a house out of thick card; had to coat it with gesso first then used Adirondak Wild Plum, Buttersotch and Stream inks.  I coated it with Mod Podge Gloss.  The butterfly stamp is an Anna Griffin one, stamped once onto acetate and once on paper.  I've used string for the 'smoke' and on the buttons.  Tried several things to stiffen the string for the smoke but had to resort to wrapping thin wire round to keep it's shape.
Dull day here today :-(

That's one very clever way to get your smoke to stand up. And that is the most colorful house I've seen in awhile! Great job. I love the button detail, too.

Anne you have a wonderful way with colour, I was sure the house was beautifully painted fabric, a fab piece of work as always. You always inspire and now I know I must blow the dust of my paints and mixed media bits. Keep up the good work.
