No place like Home

Good evening,


I hope you are all managing to keep warm  during this chilly spell.  I don't like the cold, I am much more of a spring and summer person.


Today's card is another one I made as a sample for the TV.  This is done with a stencil- but what a stencil!- it is very big!, but if you are making a card, then you don't have to use it all, just pick the bit you want.
For this card, I traced round the stencil with a fine pen then coloured it all in using Inktense pencils. These are watercolour pencils, which are nice bright colours. I like to use more than one colour in each area, then add the water with a brush.  I finished off by stamping the word 'Home' from the word chains.  The links to the Clarity products used are below..

Thanks very much for dropping in - got to my brain in gear, I'm off to the pub quiz!
