Funky Houses Frame for Poetry

I have missed a lot of the more recent SHAC get togethers with Barbara Gray recently as they coincide with the days I work and I never seem to find time to catch up on YouTube.  So I was so happy when these were produced as stamps.  I turned them into a frame for one of the poetry verses.
Stamp some of the Funky houses and trees onto Clarity stencil card in Onyx Black Versafine ink. Mask each one up in turn.

Add the large swirl stamp below in the same ink.
Create a frame by adding the smaller swirl stamp along the sides and the large one across the top. Remove the masks.
Add the poetry verse inside the frame as before.
Fussy cut the outside of the frame, leaving a narrow border.
Mask up the frames, add a small moon mask and gently brush Midnight Blue ink across the sky. Remove the masks.
Colour the houses and trees in Faber-Castell Polychromos, leaving the frame uncoloured.
To finish, add to the front of a 5” x 5” black card blank.
