Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for March 2014- Happy Place
If you have come here from Haley's Blog, you're on the right path.
How FUN is this stamp set??? It's all about HOME, FAMILY and LOVE for me :)
Today I wanted to do something a little bit different. I know you'll see tons of adorable art using the little dolls in this stamp set. I decided to focus on HOME. My home is truly my happy place :)
Here is a canvas of my home :)
I used a 9x12 canvas that I found at a local craft store.
I got started by cutting out the house image on Art Philosophy, using the layers in black and colonial white. I cut it at "fit to page" or 7 3/4". I cut and embossed barn red cardstock to look like brick. I used the Stripe Embossing Folder, and ran it through both directions to give it a checkered & weathered look. I added some Black Shimmer Trim to the roof line as well as next to the windows to look like shutters.
I cut the tree from Artbooking, in layers of Kraft paper and Green Glitter Paper.
Finally, I cut some clouds in sizes varying from 1" to 2 1/2" from Artiste. I laid them on the canvas, then sponged around them using Sky Pigment Ink. I stamped "Home is our happy place" using Barn Red Pigment ink, and "What I love most about my home..." in barn red ink. I finished it off by sponging a fence in Cocoa Pigment Ink on the sides of the house.
This is now proudly displayed in my living room :)
