Home Sweet Home

I came across these odd shape note cards I'd bought in England a few years ago and instantly knew the image and paper I was going to use for my card!

Karen had given me some new MME Lime Twist papers and I remembered seeing a cloud sheet in the package "Out of the Blue".  I mounted it on a piece of SU Not Quite Navy.  The hardest part of this card was cutting that piece to match....talk about angles!  I stamped the birdhouse  from Home Tweet Home by Gina K in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copics.

Then I stamped it again and popped it up for some dimension.  I added a few coats of clear glaze pen to the roof.  It was lacking some "oomph" so I consulted with Dana and she suggested a TE Tiny Twinkle on the "perch" and a bit of glitter on the clouds....perfect!  The Picket Fence Border die is from Taylored Expressions.

This card is one of the fastest I've made.  Good thing, because I need two more! :)
