New Home Card

I keep discovering new challenge blogs.  Today's gem of a find is Case Study Challenge.  This weeks inspiration is by Laura Bassen:

and the first thing that struck me was the colourway, it is beautiful.

So I set to work all inspired and came up with this...

I ran with the theme of houses and hearts but reversed them and stuck to the colours as much as I could.

I used silicone glue to attach the hearts to the card to give dimension.

A bit of garden twine - I love this because it so rustic.  I much prefer it to bakers twine which seems much softer and smoother.  Hand wrote 'New Home' in brown.

I don't have a die cutting machine so I worked out my hearts and houses with a pencil, ruler and craft knife. I distress them a bit by dry brushing paint over them and roughing the edges a little.

I'm not sure if I'm happy with this card to be honest with you.  I love the inspiration card so much and don't think mine quite matches up.  My colours aren't spot on, my house shape isn't quite right and the pen is the wrong colour and... well, I might just have another go tomorrow starting from scratch!!
