I found some weathered looking paper scraps I had to cover the walls of the house added windows & door freehand, used green corrigated card with a white wash to give it a distressed, weathered look. The background I brayered(*Ranger Inkssentials INKY ROLLER LARGE Ink Brayer Stamp BRA09894) myself using gloss cardstock & Stampin' Up's ink pads to make the hot evening sunset we have in Australia at Christmas, I also masked a circle behind the "burnt looking" tree (also reminicent of our hot summers here).
