Home Sweet Home


Hello,  it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight, its Home Sweet Home, as usual it's up to you what you make as long as you follow the 'Home' theme.

I've opted for a New Home card, I had a browse on Pinterest and saw this sweet card and took inspiration from the little house.  I used embossing paste through a brick stencil, when it was dry gave it a coat of watery gesso before using Antique Linen Distress Crayon, the roof and door shapes were coloured with crayons.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

Thanks for calling in, hope you have a great day,
Avril xx
