home is where the heart is.......

Hello again. Today i'm popping in with 2  CAS cards. I was having a look at The Less is More blog and the theme was home.

These cards are created in same way, just using different background and colour of ink and house stamp.

The brown one is stamped with gathered twigs distress ink on ivory linen card. I thought this would give a canvas-like look. So I stamped and dried lightly with heat gun and then pulled out colour with a damp brush. This creates shading without much fuss.
The sentiment is stamped in potting soil archival ink.

The blue one uses chipped sapphire distress ink and a different stamp. Here I also stamped some birds in first and second generation ink to create depth.

After pulling colour in same way, and drying with heat gun, I added some glitter glue where there was snow. I hope you can see it in close ups.

So I hope you like my CAS cards. All the stamps are from the Sheena Douglass range, a Little bit Scenic.

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:

Less is More - one layer card - home
TTCRD - anything goes
