Hi there folks, this week seems to be flying by doesn't it? I can't believe its Thursday already but it is and that means its time for new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge and this time around our theme is 'House and Home'
I've used a shaped card blank from Crafty Boots and created a brick effect using a Crafters Workshop Template and distress inks. I'm really pleased with the effect of this but I'm still struggling with hubby's camera so its not a very good pic so you'll have to use your imagination a bit lol. I swiped pumice stone distress ink all over the card then added tea dye through the Crafters Workshop template, followed by a touch of vintage photo here and there. I die cut the window shape using one of the lovely new Lattice spellbinders dies. The scene in the background was stamped using stamps from Chocolate Baroque's Sunburst Scenes and Country Views and coloured with promarkers. I added a green gingham bow and some tiny paper roses around the window to finish off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: spring colours
Crazy 4 Challenges: use some green
Paper Pretties: new technique (brick background)
Penny Black and More: springtime
Pretty Little ribbon Shop: spring colours
Scrapbook Sisters: Anything goes
. Its definitely starting to look like spring here in my little corner of the UK. I've got this week off work (well most of it) and for a change the weather is being kind to me so I should really drag myself out of my craftroom and tackle the weeds lol.
Thanks for calling by
