Fifteen of 'this', fifteen of 'that', fifteen of the 'other' and then mix them all together for fifteen finished cards. I started with a Hero Arts stamp set (a partnership stamps set with Operation Write Home) cheated a bit on the OWH sketch 119 to create this set. Here is the sketch
From the stamp set I selected the house, the cloud, the fence, and the kite. I stamped each of these (except the fence) on a variety of table scraps and cut them out. Then I Mixed and Matched pieces for a kind of patchwork look. Here's one 'close up'.
Each cloud was stamped twice on matching paper. Each house got the windows cut out and a contrasting piece was stamped and mounted behind. I used warm grey Copic markers to create shadows on them, too. The kites were cut into quarters and opposing pieces matched up to create whole kites. To create each card I stamped three fences on the lower portion of a white card, mounted a piece of green patterned paper over the lower edge with a torn edge. A bird was stamped on the fence and the kite stamped with the string in the bird beak. I used distress ink in 'stormy sky' around the top and sides of the sky and 'old paper' around the sides and bottom of the ground. I adhered the clouds in the sky with one overlapping the kite. Then the kite was assembled on top of the cloud, the house adhered on the grass and a shadow added at its base. Now ain't that cute? I just stamped them with a variety of text phrases to finish them off.
Here are all of them:
