I am back home again after a fantastic holiday. We had a great time away but it is so nice to be home again. I will share photos once I get myself sorted. It’s back in to our school term now and I have lots of classes and workshops coming up. But it’s all good! When I was thinking of how good home is it made me think of a card I made quite some time ago. (Ok, nearly a year ago but Ssh!!). I made this card for a special friend who was moving house and wanted to make something special for her. This took me a while but I loved the end result. This card was inspired by a card I saw by Jackie Topa but I can’t find the actual one now. I have just added some little “extra’s” to it.
Here is my card.
I have sponged clouds in the background. I made a mask using 2 scallop ovals punched out with scrap paper and adhering them to the card with Dotto. I sponged with Baja Breeze and moved the oval masks in places. The little scallop edge under the triangle roof was made using the Scallop Dotted Ribbon punnch. I sponged each piece that I punched out: the flowers, roof, leafs, grass. For the grass, I punched out a strip of Old Olive with the Scallop Edge punch and then moved it along slightly in the punch and punched out again to create a jagged edge. Other punches used: Boho Blossoms Punch, 2 step Bird Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Owl Punch (circle for the “hole”). I also used Old Olive Taffeta ribbon, and some Dazzling Diamonds for the flower centres.
Thanks for stopping by today. I love to have you visit me.
See you again soon,
