Happiness is a Home

My granddaughter just moved into her own place and I wanted to cry let her know how happy I am for her.  She's renting a tall & skinny townhouse so I thought of these whimsical Stampotique images right away.  Wouldn't it be fun to live in a neighborhood this colorful?  I'll get her a gift card for Pier One to stick inside.  I only have one grandchild out of three that's still in the nest...he will be off and flying in a couple of years.  Where does the time go?

I cut the scene into a circle after water coloring it.  I used the negative portion of the scene that was left to create an inside piece.

  1. Saw this on SCS and had to come over. Truly a beauty. Love how you did the inside too. I'm a sucker for houses. Love how you cut it into a circle, and like you I love the cloud die. I'm going to scout around for one.
