FTTC72 Bless This House

Hello Everyone!!!  Today I had the chance to play this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge which is hosted by the lovely Silke Ledlow!!!  She has challenged us with a sketch this week and I've decided to turn it sideways to accommodate this cute cottage!!  I thought this would make a cute new home or housewarming card!  :)

I started with a base of So Saffron and layered with a piece of white embossed with Swiss Dots.  Next I took two pieces of Windsor Knot DSP and matted with some Baja Breeze that I punched with my new Iron Gate border punch.  Around one of the panels I've added some white satin ribbon.  Next I stamped the cottage from Flourishes' Cottage Home set in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YG03, YG63, YG67, C1, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, Y21, YR23, YR24, B21, 0).  I really wasn't happy with the sky....next on my list of colours to get is B0000 or B000 (or maybe even both LOL!!).  I cut the cottage out with Label 10 nestabilities and then trimmed the edge and matted with Close to Cocoa also cut with Label 10 nestabilities.  I wasn't happy with the way the trees got cut off, so I coloured another pair, cut them out and stuck them on and then popped the whole panel up on foam tape.  I finished by adding a little white satin bow to the ribbon and the sentiment from the same set to the image.

You've done it again Kathy. A really gorgeous card and I like the way you've stamped the trees again. They look good rising just about the edge of the die. Fabulous colouring too.
