I have been dying to ink up the Studio 12 Susan Weckesser, "The purpose of Art" A6 stamp set for ages and had the perfect opportunity recently .... a new home card for my sons girlfriend ... married with the fab sentiment from "Home Sweet Home" A6 stamp set.
I have stamped the house on to a heart (hand drawn) and added the sentiment as a banner. I just had to add the ribbon roses as Luke's girlfriend is called Rosie ......!
The background was made by painting with white and blue acyrlic paints and when dry, I stamped the house images on to it as my starting point. I then stamped the "cityscape" wording on a thin strip of green card and stuck under my sky. Finally teraing the edges, top and bottom, and stuck my background down on my card blank. I then restamped the main image on to white card, colouring with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks. I wanted the sandwiched ickle house to be my focal point, so cut out a heart and then stamped the house coluring with Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany distress inks, mounting up with 3D foam pads. I cut out the sun and clouds and added them where they would appear on the image.
I have a great idea for this stamp as a focal point for a Christmas card, so watch this space .....
I am entering my card in to the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Anything except a birthday card with a sentiment
Happy Campers - use a stamp
