New Home

I have a 'New Home' card to share today...featuring an old Pollycraft stamp called...er...'New Home'! I coloured it using watercolour pencils to match the colours in the 'Paper Hearts' papers (by Crate paper). I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I made some bunting from snippets of the papers using a die from a Craft Asylum/Sizzix set...and added some hand-written letting for the sentiment.
