Home Tag

As you probably know I have been taking part in the Weekly Rolling Recipe Tag Challenge run over on UK Stampers Forum.  This weeks tag (No.19) had to possess the following features:

1. Trees
2. Houses
3. Heat Embossing

So here is mine.  I started with a white card trimmed to size and stamped the trees (Crafty Individuals) with Versafine onyx black ink.  I then adhered and trimmed two pieces of 7 gypsies printed paper, top & bottom. The blue in the sky was added with Memento ink and cut'n'dry foam in summer sky and danube blue.  A daisy border stamp (Inca Stamps) was stamped along the bottom in Versafine onyx black ink.

Next the house was cut from chipboard and coated in Versamark ink before sprinkling on silver, silver pearl and enchanted gold Heat It Up embossing powders.  This was heated with the heat gun until melted and one or two more pinches of the powders added as needed to get the desired effect.  I wanted the roof to be textured.  The window hole was backed with blue paper and a blind drawn on in white pigment pen.

The joins between the paper and the trees were covered in stitches drawn in with a white pigment pen and I then applied aqua Stickles to the leaves on the daisies in the border and stuck the house in place with Glossy Accents.  The word 'HOME' was then applied with printed vellum stickers.

The whole tag was edged with dark green chalk ink and a beige eyelet applied with the crop'a'dile and tied through with beige/brown fibres to finish.
