Amuse Challenge #4 - PUNCHES - From Our House to Yours

This idea came to me when I was looking at my Amuse sentiments (because that is mostly what I have from Amuse -- I am a big collector of sentiment stamps). I wanted to include punches in some way and I thought of making a window looking out across the street. The houses are from SU "Right at Home" set. The background (Creamy caramel) was stamped in creamy caramel ink with SU's "Canvas." The creamy caramel layer is attached with pop dots to the chocolate chip layer, which has a big hole cut in it. Then the white layer with the house is attached to the other side of the chocolate chip layer flush. The houses were colored using my twinkling H2O's and also some watercolor pencils for accents here and there. I outlined the windows and doors on the houses with a chocolate chip marker. After all of the watercoloring was done, I added some crystal effects on the windows to make them look like glass, and some diamond stickles on the heart and the flowers to make them sparkle. Oh and the sentiment, by Amuse, was stamped in chocolate chip.
