Home & Garden


This week on Something Completely Different the Tag challenge is to include something home related. First thought those stamps from QVC 8 or 9 years ago there were about 50 in a fab storage box and a real mixture of styles and sizes. there are 3 or 4 that are home related for this the little Home sweet Home seemed best. So with a stamp in mind i went onto the WWW to find pictures of keys these two came on a royalty free plate of 5 old fashined keys printed alcohol inked and clear embossed they look quite good. Now the stamp onto a piece of corragated card and onto some scrap acatate that was alcohol inked a while back, even stuck togather it still only shows clear at a certain tilt in a certain light so out come the black promarker. For the tag itself a scrap of acatate backed with Johnson's klear floor polish and inks has been cut into a basic house shape and over stamped with the Tanda Flower and Butterfly stamp used last week, the image has been coloured with matalic paint that was rubbed when dry to remove some of the colour. The flower on Fantasy fibre is one of several made a couple of years ago using an older Craft Stamper freebi, that project did not work out but the flower is just right now. the words and peel offs were added as a finishing touch. Basically this piece uses up a lot of my old scraps!
