Home Sweet Home

The weeks go by so fast!  Once again it is time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our theme this time, selected by me, is "Home Sweet Home."  There are all sorts of ways to go with this theme.  My first thought went to this Artistic Outpost image from the Outpost plate, however, you could also make a house shaped card or a card with a bird cage.  The possibilities are endless.  For my card, I began with smooshing various Distress Inks on my Craft Mat and sopping up the inks onto white card stock.  I stamped my house image with Black StazOn Ink over the background.  The sentiment was stamped onto a torn piece of Kraft paper.  Simple embellishments include vintage seam binding and button, burlap string, and some beautiful die cut leaves compliments of the Funkie Junkie Boutique with a recent order.  I hope you will check out the inspiration pieces of my design team sisters and submit an entry of your own for a possible prize.  Please remember we need to see stamping on your entry as we are a stamping challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne
