Papertrey Ink New Home card


Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend and are rested for the week ahead. It may not have escaped your notice that I am a big fan of Papertrey Ink and they are celebrating their 8th birthday right now with lots of challenges and inspiration posts. I am already 4 days behind and playing catch up but I want to join in with as many challenges as I can. On the first day we were asked to chose a sketch and a colour scheme to produce a card and I chose these:-


I needed a new home card for some friends who are moving after 30 years and I came up with this card

I masked off a rectangle and inked it using 3 colours of ink with a distress ink tool, before stamping the words over it. I then impressed the panel with the Canvas and Linen Impression Plate, and layered up the panels. I die cut the house and banner and used foam tape to pop everything up. All the stamps are from Polka Dot Parade #10, and I finished it off with some dots I made with Ranger Enamel Accents, along with a little heart that I placed on the roof.

I'd like to enter this into
