Home Sweet Home.

Well today was another lovely Wednesday with good company, some chatting, coffee, chocolate and yes, some crafting.
A couple of the ladies had asked if we could make cards suitable for new home so that is what we did.
This is the first card we made,

We created the background by using Distress inks and then spritzing water through the stencil and blotting it. 

This really gives a great effect....the Clarity quirky cottage stamp was stamped using Distress ink Barn Door, water was then used to drag the colour thus giving a watercolour effect.

We stamped the Clarity keys stamps and used gold detail embossing powder...cut them out ...and added them to the design....A clarity sentiment to finish off the design....
Our second card uses the same cottage stamp but this time we used Memento ink and Alcohol markers...

It is really good to see how the same stamp looks so different depending on what other products you use with it...

I do love Glossy Accents to add dimension and gloss to a project.
If you would like any of the stamps or stencils that we used they can all be found here.....
I'm off now ....time for feet up and cuddles with Tess....
Enjoy your evening ....hugs...Jo. X
