Home Sweet Home

Goo evening

Just thought I'd pop in quickly and share the most recent card I made.  This one was for my Brother and Sister-in-Law who moved into their first purchased property this weekend.

They love nature, particularly birds so I chose to stamp with a little birdhouse...

I blended up from the corner of a white cardstock panel with three shades of Distress Ink before splattering with water and blotting away some of the colour.  The birdhouse and sentiment were simply stamped in black before popping the panel up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Hot Off The Press - Sweet Tweets (free with a publication); Woodware - Home Sweet Home
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress Ink - Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade

Challenge entries:

Allsorts - Challenge #403 - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #229 - Clean and Simple

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you've had a wonderful weekend.
