Hello again, friends! This week is the Riley & Company New Release and there is plenty of great product for every craft room. We’re midway through our release week and today I’m sharing two of the new Mushroom Lane Houses.
These adorable images were introduced last year. There were 15 Mushroom Lane images available and this week we are adding 5 more. If you like a little bit of everything, there are also 2 coloring books available. See them all in the Mushroom Lane category of the webstore.
First, a comparison for you. I started out coloring two identical images with different shades of the same color. The idea in my head didn’t translate to paper very well, so in the end I decided to go with two separate cards. This image was my favorite of the two after coloring.
And, here is the other image. Note the more subtle tones? I fussy cut this one out and used a sentiment from the “Life is a Fairytale” word set. Which version of the image do you like better?
My third mushroom lane card is this one. I colored up the image and then recolored portions of two more of the same image. Then, I fussy cut out the sections I wanted and used foam tape to mount them onto the original image. See how the door is slightly back from the stone frame?
Here’s a close up of the texture. These image are great for this technique…but be prepared to hang out with your scissors for a bit. Well worth the work!
There is plenty more to see on the Riley & Company Facebook page and on the blog. Plus, don’t forget my fellow Design Team members’ blogs. In case you missed them, here are the new release specials this week:
