My Home Is .........

  


This card could be used as a 'New Home' card but is entered into the City Crafter Challenge Blog for week 223 - the subject this week is 'Home is Where The Heart is'.

I started with a 5 x 5 inch white card blank and cut a piece of paper slightly less than the base which was adhered to the background after edging with old paper Distress Ink.  By the way all papers used are from My Minds Eye!




I then used a Tim Holtz Sizzix alterations die and cut the houses which I separated only using a strip of three.  These were adhered as shown and the smoke, underline and windows were added using black Posca Pen.




The honeycomb design was cut out from another piece of paper and adhered as shown above the houses and three similar individual 'combs' were cut out, edged with Distress Ink and adhered over the originals on foam pads to add a bit of depth.





Finally I used a PaperArtsy stamp of three arches and stamped this on white card in Versafine onyx black ink, trimming out just the one arch which again was edged and coloured with more Distress ink.  This was adhered on foam pads as shown.

Love the earthy tones of the colours on this card.
