My "Row House" village

My "village" is done.  (I'm no doubt going to build another).  These were soooo much fun to create!  And I have all kinds of ideas for more floating around in my head :)  I got some new Tim Holtz clear stamp sets today and used some of them on these.  I posted pics of a couple of them, but some of them had been remodeled :)  Plus, I decided to get off my lazy behind and use my camera so you could see the golden shimmer background. The Rose house underwent some slight renovations and I wanted to show the golden shimmer when it's tilted in the light. 

You can go here to find out how to make your own Shimmer Mist:

I have Pearl Ex powders and made my own using floor wax, water, Pearl Ex and an SU reinker.  I used equal amounts of water and liquid floor wax, added a small amount of PE, then enough drops of the reinker to suit my taste.  I mixed them in a mini mister so it doesn't take much at all.  When I stamped the sentiment over it in the Rose house, the shimmer can still be seen through the black India ink I stamped with.  I may use a bit less PE powder next time, although I'm quite happy with how it turned out on the house :)
