A fabulous New Home
I know just how stressful moving house can be, but luckily I haven't had to do it for quite a few years now. I had all the elements for the card prepared well before Christmas, but didnt want to tempt fate by sticking everything down before I heard the move had gone smoothly !
I used the stamps, papers and card from a recent Little Claire's monthly kit and knew as soon as I saw the kit it would be perfect for a New Home card.
The image is coloured using Copics and I added Glossy Accents to the kettle, cooking tools and a few other elements to give them a little dimension. I do love the red gingham and kraft papers together, they look so stylish. The colours I used were influenced by the plans for my new kitchen as it will be predominantly cream with a few red highlights added with the kettle, toaster and coffee maker. We have a mini range cooker which looks a bit like a baby Aga, but all electric, I just can't wait for it all to be finished. The Home Sweet Home sentiment is from a set of stamps by Dark Room Door.
Sadly my pal is now quite poorly, I think she just wore herself out with the house move and everything and she now needs to rest and recouperate - it was such a shame that she had to miss last weekend's Craftathon in Bristol as I was so looking forward to seeing her again. I made her a Get Well card and I'll share that with you in another post over the next few days.
Thanks for dropping by today.
