Home sweet Home card

 Well Trace here again , and for this make I have used the same set of PaperArtsy stamps, as I used in this make here ...but this time I have used them to create a card, using some yummy distress goodies to create layers of interest on this simple card ...



I started by smooshing some distress inks ...stormy sky and frayed burlap into my craft sheet and spritzing with water...I then spritzed a piece of card and swiped it through the inky dots..



I re-swiped until I was happy and then heat dried..

I then applied some texture paste, transparent gloss through a stencil, this one is a Tim Holtz one..


I applied in various places and left to dry


when dry I replaced the same stencil in different places on the background and added some walnut stain distress ink using a blending tool and added some more blue ink to deepen the colour.

I added to card front and inked edges using walnut stain distress ink.


For the main image , I stamped in walnut stain distress ink, which allowed me to take a wet brush and gently move some of the ink to soften the main image slightly...giving a very subltle watercolour effect.



I layered this piece onto some Tim Holtz pieces and a strip of the leftover background...adding a mini plaque and the word home stamped from same set..


Finally tying some dyed seam binding  around inside and forming a bow on the front of the card ...to add a little softness..


so hope you like this card ...using simple layers 


see you soon ..
keep those fingers inky!
