I used various texture type stamps from Beautiful Blizzard, Eclectic Expressions, and Artisan Textures to color the scene using Soft Sky and Whisper White inks on the sky, Balmy Blue ink for the water, Pear Pizzazz for the grass/bushes, and Crumb Cake for the paths and rock walls.
I used Sponge Daubers to fill in any edges and empty spots using the same colors of ink.
And then used Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Old Olive Stampin' Blend Sets to color the house and add some highlights and definition where needed.
The door was colored with the Real Red Stampin' Write marker.
Then I trimmed the piece using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, mounted the piece onto a bottom mat of Crumb Cake CS (5-14" x 4") and then mounted them both onto a White Card Base.
The sentiment is from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set and was stamped in Old Olive Ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White CS and cut with a die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits and popped up with Dimensionals.
