Sneak Peek - Home Tweet Home

Hi Bloggers.

Today's sneak peek features the Justrite Home Tweet Home Clear Stamp Set and the Stitched Circles Background. There's a SVG file to go with the Home Tweet Home set. You can see the Justrite Blog entry for both stamp sets here.

Today's card is a really different style for me but it's one of my favourites -

The background, is the Justrite Stitched Circles Background stamped onto Coconut White Card with Cool Peri Adirondack Dye Ink. Once dry, I inked around the edges with Cool Peri.

I stamped the sentiment from the Home Tweet Home Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out, with the sentiment towards the right-hand side, using Sue's Decorative Frames Set B from the Californian Collection and inked through the die with Cool Peri.

I stamped the birdhouse using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I coloured it in using Distress Markers. I used Scattered Straw, Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord with my Tim Holtz Water Brush. I cut it out using scissors. I stamped the bow, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I coloured it in using Dusty Concord Distress marker. I cut it out and added it to the birdhouse.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Cream Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

More tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
