Home Sweet Home

Happy Thursday, all! =) I have a card made with stamps from Purple Onion Designs to share with you. Purple Onion Designs is also the featured company of "Stamp" of Approval at Moxie Fab World today. Don't forget to hop over and leave a comment on the post for a chance to win some yummy stamps!


I used the versatile Home Sweet Home set to build the little house and the banner is from the Build-a-Banner set.


The background is made with a pool of ink created by pressing tumbled glass and peeled paint on my Non Stick Craft Sheet then adding a few spritz of water. I tried to keep the tumbled glass on top and the peeled paint on the button to get a sky and field/ground look. But some green escaped... =) The scene is paper pieced using patterned paper from Life is Good collection by Echo Park and the sentiment comes with the Home Sweet Home set.

That's all from me. Don't forget to leave a comment at Moxie Fab World for a chance to win some yummy stamps from Purple Onion Designs!





Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
