Home Sweet Home Card


For this card I put the emphasis on the quirky side of the Clarity Quirky Cottage stamps.

As always, I started off the design by playing around with a black ink pad and some copy paper. Once I was happy with it I cut an octagon in the middle of a piece of 12x12 card using my Cameo. Each side measured slightly more than the width of the largest cottage.  This became a template to stamp the words in and ink the grass through. I masked off the word SWEET, then brayered and used my Ink Dusters to fill in the green for the grass.

When that was done I stamped the cottages and coloured them in with my ProMarkers. I chose a variety of colours to carry on the quirky theme. For this reason I did the clouds a bit darker than I normally would. They never seem to photograph that well though.

To finish it off I used a fine black pen to complete the octagon between the houses. I coloured some Card Candi to match the door of the opposite house (I'm hopeless at random!) and used my 1/16" Perfect Layers ruler to give me a thin black border.
