Done messing with My little derelict house ...Now the question is ?

Did I improve it or destroy it I added the dorma windows, changed the door colour, added pink lace and ivy growing up the walls I think it improved it a little but I still would not make another lol










Today I,ve been playing with my new impress pens which were a bargain at £18 from QVC outlet store :). I decided to try a new techique, so I  coloured  in the pad in  several colours, then spritzing with water, it gives a wonderful watercoloured effect. I also did a close up section of one flower, I am sure this is called something, but not a clue as to what? I also inked the edges of the card it was mounted on to, then stamped the background in toning colours I added a ribbon gems and buttons to finish off I had great fun making these.
