Home Sweet Home

Hi guys

My craft stash is up in the air at the moment as I've had to move it all to the lounge as I'm having a new carpet laid in my hall tomorrow, which is where my craft stash cupboard lives!  So today I will share a couple of cards I've made recently but not yet posted here.

The first is a new home card which I am going to enter at the current challenge at CASology where the cue word is 'Pet'.  I had a couple of pet tortoises when I was a child so I thought this would be an ideal entry.

Really simple stamped image, coloured with ProMarkers and cut out with a rectangular die.  I mounted it on some jute ribbon (an absolute bargain at £1 for a roll at my local garden centre!) and added some Wink of Stella to the hat.  Although, I have no idea why this little chap is wearing the hat on his shell and not his head! lol

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Woodware - Home Sweet Home
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versa Color - Green Tea
  • Jute Ribbon from stash
  • Accented with Wink of Stella

I'll be back very soon with another card I made recently.  Hope to see you shortly :)
