For my card I used this very cute Rabbits of the Round Table image, coloured with copics and the edges inked with Dried Marigold DI I then dabbed some Star Dust Stickles here nd there. I used my Grand Calibur and Grand Circle and Grand Scalloped nesties for the base card. The papers are Kraft Coredinations and some Kaiser Craft spotty paper. The green spotty paper was from a shop in the UK on my recent visit. I used a Spellbinders Banner die, some twine, a few Hero Arts gems some Basic Grey buttons and an oval ribbon slider from the Ally Pally.

I decided to make a New Home card and door hanger today :-)

I used this fab No Place Like Home Image.

For the card I used some 7 Gypsies paper, inked the edges with Vintage Photo DT and distressed the edges. I used a Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes die to cut some grungepaper. I coloured this with Aged Mahogany ink and embossed with distress embossing powder. I used a grungeboard elements door plate, inked and distressed too and added a glittered heart and a Vintag key. I coloured a little with copics and added a fab strip of ribbon from the Best of British Collection.

For the door hanger I used some free mountboard from a local framer.

I painted it with Gesso and then used various background masks and stamps from Dyan Reaveley. I stamped the image on Sticky Backed Canvas and inked with Antique Linen DI I used more grungepaper elegant flourishes and a lock and key from Maya Road Antique keys mini chipboard set. The ‘Welcome’ was cut out on a Silhouette Cameo machine and I used a eyelets, twine and some 3mm ribbon to tie it all together :-)
