Take Me Home

Here's a card I created for Artistic Outpost using the Home set of stamps.
This barn reminds me so much of "home"where my parents still I added the trees in the background to look even more like it.

The barn scene as well as the trees are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copic markers. I masked off the upper edge of the stamp before I inked it to eliminate the word "greetings" & postmark. I used a piece of Core'dinations paper for the frame cut with a Spellbinders Deckle Edge Rectangle and sanded. The DP is from a Basic Grey Wisteria 6 x 6 pad. I distressed the edges with Antique Linen and added a few buttons plus a piece of pearl cotton across the green Bazzil mat.I trimmed around the barn to layer it over the trees background. I added some foam squares under the barn and the frame.

I added a few trees to the inside. These are inked with Peeled Paint & Brushed Corduroy, once stamped off. "Home" is stamped with Brushed Corduroy as well. I inked the edges with Antique Linen & Brushed Corduroy.
Thank you for visiting........please stop back soon.
