Feels Like Home – Project 3

Happy Stampin’ Wednesday!

I finally did a water coloring for this beautiful stamp. I am not sure I did it justice though with the matting. I do love the torn edges and I spruced up the backgrounds with a Blending Brush. I will show you that it is never too late to use a Blending Brush on today’s project.

Begin by folding card base at score line and burnish with a bone folder for a nice crisp fold.

On one of the white inside panels, stamp the image in Tuxedo Black in the center of the cardstock using the Stamparatus for a nice crisp image.

Using a Water Painter, water color the image. I used Crumb Cake and Soft Suede for the door, door frame, and baskets. Cinnamon Cider and Cajun Craze for the brick. Soft Succulent and Granny Apple Green for the greenery. Polished Pink for the flowers and Soft Suede for the ground planters. Gray Granite for the bicycle. Pool Party and Balmy Blue for the window panes in the door.

As you can see below, I used the small Clear (Acrylic) Block B as a pallet to draw up ink onto the Water Painter.

Next, I used the Water Painter to moisten the paper to prep it for tearing. Once it was moist, I tore all for sides of the stamped image to soften the embellishment.

Emboss the large Cinnamon Cider piece using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder.

Adhere embossed piece to the card base, then, adhere stamped image on top at an angle.

On the small Basic White piece, stamp the sentiment using Cinnamon Cider ink.

Cut a 4″ piece of Scalloped Lace Trim and set across the bottom of the stamped image.

Mat the sentiment and adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, centered on top of the lace.

Using the Stampin’ Blends Light Crumb Cake marker, color three pearls and adhere to the card front.

I was not happy with how plain the edges looked, so I added a bit of Crumb Cake to the card base edges. I tend to do this when I do not like the harsh lines of my cardstock. I suppose I could have added a bit of color to the edges of the stamped image, but I was happy with the card base.
