The Paper Door ~ Home Sweet Home

Hey there lovely crafty friends. I'm swinging in tonight with my next Paper Door creation and it's using a gorgeous image in the set which is a stand alone stamp set. This sweet set allows you to create little scenes, adding in tiny elements to the main image. So I've added the sweet horse to the scene and the sentiment underneath. 

I've used a watercolour set my mummy gave me for my recent birthday, which I'm not at all accustomed to using and was much thicker than I anticipated. I really needed to water the pigment down more. But I still loved the way the sky came out with the purply hues amongst the blue so couldn't bare to bin it! But I definitely need to play some more with these watercolours to get the ratio of water to pigment right. 

I used a plain paper from the Paper Door Set to mat the image and then a lovely striped paper from the set to create the patterned base. I've mounted it all on a top folding white card base and kept it completely CAS so as not to swamp the sweet scene with embellishments. Not the finest watercolouring I've ever seen (or done) but I love this sweet scene and really want to have another go soon to get the watercolouring right. It's just been my baby boys birthday, (I say baby, but he's just turned 9!) so I'm in busy mama mode, we had family over for dinner to share his day and it was wonderful! We have a little cinema party this weekend with a group of his friends too, so I'll be tied up for a few days with these events. But I hope to have some time to try this sweet scene again after all the party excitement.
