Dans ma maison .....

Dans ma maison il y a une lettre.

The challenge set this week by Dans Ma Maison is to put a letter in one's house. I used the letter 'H' and the word 'house', which seemed the most appropriate!

Those of you with eagle eyes will notice that I have used part of my chandelier masterboard. To the right of that I applied sahara Viva Terra paint, stamped into it with a Paper Artsy stamp and helped it to dry using my heat gun, this produced the bubbles you can see along the right-hand edge. I dabbed on turquoise acrylic paint and, once this had dried, sprayed it with purple pansy Glimmer Mist. On the other side I painted a touch of violet acrylic paint. I stuck on the letter 'H' sticker and stamped the rest of the word underneath, using silver embossing powder to make it stand out. I damped it down a bit by going around the letters with black ink. The flower added the finishing touch.

P.S. If anyone knows who produces the chandelier stamps I used on my masterboard I would be very grateful if you would let me know. I was so eager to use them when I first got them home that I threw out the packaging and there is no identifying mark on the plastic the stamps sit on!

Mystery solved! A kind friend has just told me that the stamps are made by Inkadinkado - thanks, Nettie.
