Mixed Media Card Challenge #6


This month's theme at The Mixed Media Card Challenge is "Home" with an optional element of "Lace". Why does that make me think of an old granny in her Victorian house?!?


Well, my stash of dies doesn't include many houses, so I went with this one from PTI's Love Lives Here set and the trees from City Scene. Added some artificial snow (man that stuff gets all over the place!) and embossing paste stencilled through SSS Falling Stars to the sky which I watercolored.

For a bit more texture I dry embossed my kraft cardbase with a doily (kinda like lace, right?) embossing folder from Crate Paper and then inked over it lightly to make the impressions pop.

A sentiment from STAMPlorations Joyful on a tag accompanied by a perching cardinal from Impression Obsession finish off my card.

I think I managed a mixed media card that's still kinda CAS ;) Check out the DT's fabulous creations and show us your take on "Home". If you need a refresher, here's the deal on what makes a card a mixed media card. Basically, it's about TEXTURE, DIMENSION and TECHNIQUES. The challenge runs until December 25th.

I'm joining the Anything Goes fun over at:

I want to pack my bags to go spend some time in that sweet cabin in the woods! The pretty heart tells me it will be inviting, warm and cozy inside, and the gently falling snowflakes speak of tranquility. Yes, I want to go visit...
