New Home Celebration !

It's time for the next challenge over at The Stamp Man. Jill (the boss!) is hosting this challenge and it's a nice easy one, Anything goes Celebrations ! Remember for the winner there is the usual £10 voucher to spend in the online shop.

One of my sisters is due to move house next week so I've made this tag which will accompany the gift I'm going to buy (need to think what that will be !) I've used the Darkroom Door Home Sweet Home stamp set and the Tim Holtz Fabulous Flourishes. I started by stamping the flourish across the bottom edge of the jumbo tag with Multi Matt Medium. I dried it off then blended a combination of Barn Door, Dried Marigold, Fired Brick, Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade DI over it. The glue resists the ink beautifully ! I then did a little spritz and flick and dried it off again. The pieces of torn paper are from an old book. I did some second generation stamping onto card I blended DI over then stamped the large house on top of that before cutting it out.

The numbers are cut using the fabulous Tim Holtz Word Play die, I've blended Ripe Persimmon DI over them and then coated them with Glossy Accents. The flower is cut using the Tattered Flowers die from Crinoline and they've been dyed with Distress Stains.

This is a quick post today as time has really not been on my side ! Hope you get chance to join us for this challenge !
