Houses on the Fence Posts

The Clean and Simple challenge on Split Coast this week was to use cut outs on your card.

I stamped these cute birdhouses in three different colors, cut them out and layered them onto the posts of this barbed fence.

I went over the barbed wire with a clear Spica pen so it shimmers a little IRL.

I added a few punched hearts so this could be a Valentine card if I wanted it to be , colored the fence with copics and tied the gingham ribbon around the top to fill in a little bit of the white space! Pretty clean, pretty simple.

My card today is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". All my stamps are from Rubbernecker Stamps
