Home Sweet Home
Hi Happy Sunday,
To all you lovely folk around the world, and
for us over here hope you're enjoying your bank holiday weekend, and the sunshine whoopee!!
The challenge over at stamping for the weekend is
"Get to know you better through your favourite book"
I used my Cute Companions mice for my favourite book "The Borrowers" so little Arrietty, Pod and Homily the Clock family are at home. They like to go into the big house and borrow all the little things that go missing, buttons, pins and needles. Have you ever wondered where they all go . You can never find a needle when you want one!!!
It's not strictly accurate they are little people who live under the floor boards not mice, but it shows a little family with large objects, and makes a nice new home card.
Edit: So thrilled my card won It's a Crafters Companion Challenge
and madeTOP 3 at Stamping for the Weekend
Some more challenges are:
Copic colour challenge ~ to use the colours B02 BV02 YG03
Allsorts ~ Animals
It's a crafters companion ~ 3D project
This is the view of the front, the bottom was hidden by the steps.
I printed the theme sheet from the CC volume 1 CD it's 5x5" cut out the cotton reels and wool from the A5 that is on the same sheet and 3d them.
Most of the stamps are on the Play days set, the book and reader are from Wonderful Christmas.
This is the first time using the Tim Holtz paper distresser. Easy to do but not sure if I like it, new style for me.
Wanted to give the impression of old and dark I inked with TH distressing ink tea dye, faded jeans and peeled paint.
I coloured the mice with copic markers in the colours for the challenge, with E 50 51 53 R20 W1
flowered paper was a magazine freebie and the coloured card from my stash.
The sentiment was done on the computer the trimmings are all from my stash.
Bit of a long post if you're still with me happy crafting and thanks for stopping by.
Love Cherie //*.*\\
