Fairy Home

It's been a while since I made a background scene using inks, so today I decided to make a scene using the lovely Lavinia stamps.  
As I need a card for my daughter who is starting a new job as a town planner next week, I wanted to incorporate a house for this card.  I decided to use the Lavinia 'Mushroom Dwelling' stamp as the main image.  I first stamped the image on a piece of white card, then stamped it again on an offcut, which I cut out to make a mask.  I put the mask over the first image, then made my background using Adirondack inks applied with Ink Dusters.  The mask was then removed and I used Promarkers to colour in the image.  The completed scene was matted on black, before attaching to the white scalloped card.

I would like to enter my card for the following challlenges:

This is a brilliant card and to be quite honest I am not really a fan of this type of card but for some reason I really do love this one.
