Well, the folks at Just Add Ink did it again ... their inspiration challenge this week is so gorgeous I simply could not resist making a card.
This pic is very much #decorgoals for me - I love, love, love this look. Unfortunately my thumb is any colour BUT green so I continually kill indoor plants, but I can rock fake greenery with the best of them! Lol.
For my card I used the brick, timber and greenery elements - as well as the colour scheme - in a little mixed media creation.
First I stencilled some brickwork onto watercolour card using grit paste and once it was dry, used oxide sprays and water to create my background. I scratched away tiny pieces of the grit paste to reveal the lighter colour underneath, giving it an aged look.
The letters for 'Home' were cut from some woodgrain card I had on hand already coloured, I simply outlined them with a darker brown (using distress crayon) to make them stand out. The greenery was also cut from some pre-prepped card I had on hand - very useful to have, so when you make a card you don't have to make every element from scratch. Then it was simply a matter of attaching everything. The darling little rosebuds add a nice pop of colour.
