Yes, our new topic is 'New Beginnings' and you can see all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and find out how to enter here at Try It On Tuesday.
I chose New Home, as here where I live there are often new neighbours and when we first moved in we felt really welcomed by the cards we received.
I have had this set of Crafty Individuals stamps for a while and must confess to never introducing them to my ink pad - I do remember though that it was the quote that made me buy them (although I do love the houses!)It also meant I could use my favourite sun stamp - a wood mounted Rubber Stampede one! I decided to go with pink and green - just because - and I quite like the combination!
The whole row was stamped onto some watercolour paper that had been smooshed through a mixture of green spritzed inks.
The pink house was stamped onto a scrap of pink paper and stuck on.
The sun was stamped onto the pink paper too and I cut out the main part of the image and stamped it also onto the card before sticking image on top.
Now, I don't know about you but I am not very steady at getting things in a straight line….so…the "NEW HOME" was made by using punched letters stuck onto roughly cut squares(stamping would work too!)and then arranged ever so slightly at angles.
I inked the edges with a Distress marker just to make them stand out more.
I added some gold highlights to the sun and to the roof of the pink house to finish it!
I hope you will hop over to Try it On Tuesday and be tempted to join in - as you will see 'New Beginnings' can be interpreted in so many ways!!
I am also sure you will receive a warm welcome at Elizabeth's blog The Altered Book Lover, especially if you bring your drink with you!!
Mine's a coffee….with cake, bought from the farm shop we visit occasionally …I know…I shouldn't…but a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do, we had been out for a walk at Sizergh Castle so I had earned it!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
