Happy New Home

Morning Folks.  Today's project is a New Home card I created to send to a lovely on-line crafting pal who finally moved into her new home after a long and stressful time spent waiting for all the necessary legal stuff to be completed.  I'm sure she's now settling in nicely and I hear that she will actually have a dedicated craftroom, how fabulous !

Here's the card I created to send to her

To create the background I used one of my current fave ways to use Distress Inks.  Applying the ink pad direct to the card and dragging, this creates a great effect which I love.  I used Mustard Seed and Mown Lawn, over stamping the border onto the green area with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I've used stamps I recently acquired from The Artistic Stamper, I love these quirky little houses and the sentiment was just perfect.  I love how the border stamp works well to create the impression of flowers in the garden.  I used Copics to add a few touches of colour to the houses, cut out the stamped design and attached to the background using foam pads.  After cutting around the sentiment layer, I dragged the Mown Lawn ink pad around the edges to soften them a little.

Hope you enjoyed your visit today, it's great to have your company for a few moments, let me know what you think of my creations, I love hearing how people feel about my work.  Have a Great Day, whatever you have planned.
