I cut my paper pieces out first, and reinforced the score lines on the roof with the small pointy end of my bone folder. Once I carefully folded and scored the lines, making sure not to score on the stitching, I got to work coloring the roof. I inkblended with Distress Oxide inks in a shade of blue called Faded Jeans. Then I masked off the door and used the same technique to color the house a soft yet bright yellow called Scattered Straw. I’m pretty sure my brush was still saturated with enough Squeezed Lemonade to add some more vibrancy to the yellow. Inked the door a solid brown color called Brushed Corduroy than splattered some water and white ink across my pieces.
While those dried I stamped some characters from the Fun Adventure set and Copic colored those in bright primary colors. The Little girl looks like Madeline to me from those old cartoons based off of the book series with the same name. And that’s where I turned to get my color palette. I backed my windows with some dotted patterned paper to resemble wall paper, and die cut the door handle heart from some gold glitter cardstock that I pieced in.
