Digital Two For Tuesday 67
This week's images are from a really interesting book from 1913 called Yourself and Your House Wonderful. The book is for parents and teachers to raise healthy children. This week our hostess is the very talented paper artist,Claudine. She has created two beautiful cards using this weeks images. I love how with two similar images she has created two cards for very different occasions.
For my first card, I made a clean and simple card. I thought this house image would be perfect for "we've moved" cards. I simply printed the image, cut it out with an oval Nestabilities die, then mounted it on a black oval shape. For the base of the card, I ran it through a embossing folder from Stampin Up. I completed the card by adding a computer-generated sentiment and a few black rhinestones. These "we've moved" cards would be fast and easy to "mass-produce."
For this card I wanted to create a holiday/winter scene. I printed the house, colored it with Copic markers, then used Tim Holtz distress inks to distress the edges. To create the winter feel, I added Flower Soft snow to the roof, bushes, and trees. The papers used are Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, and Deck the Halls DSP by Stampin Up. I cut out the green panel with a Nestabilites die then ran it through a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I completed the card by adding a ribbon, snowflake charm, sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers.
