{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Features The Outhouse!


Hi, Cornelia here today,featuring the outhouse from the December stamp club set - Country Rustic.



I always thought the outhouse is just hilarious, so I finally had some time to make a card with it! 


I started with watercolor paper and heat embossed the outhouse in white.



I then layered water colors around it, starting with a relatively light blue and adding darker shades, one by one. I made sure the colors dried in between adding a new layer. I also colored the outhouse in different shades of brown.



You don't have to worry about your watercolor skills here, because it looks even better with imperfections! I added water splatters and white splatters with Speedball ink.



Then I decided it would look better on darker paper, so I took a square stitched die (SSS) and found some matching papers in my stash and stapled it all together. The sentiment is heat embossed, too. The pretty glitter enamel dots are from Happy Little Stampers.



I love how this turned out! But I am thankful I don't have to actually use an outhouse on a daily basis ;) Happy Stamping!

  7. This card makes me laugh. My friend and I went to a cabin and they had an outhouse and it was a double seater...well, how could we resist a pic!! I love your background. You have made a fun card with a harder to use image!

  8. Made me giggle about the outhouse! Vibrant, bold and fantastic colours. Fun use for the image, which isn't the easiest to incorporate x
