a place called home...

Hi there... everyone! I finally had a chance to do a bit of scrapping this weekend... finishing off a few layouts that i started a while back and also creating this layout for this week Made With Love assignment... focusing on distress ink / stamping techniques.

For this layout, I first started off by creating the distress effect on the kraft cardstock - by using tim holtz distress ink and water - to add a bit of texture, color and design to the plain cardstock. [on a glossy surface, first stamp the distress inks and spray water onto the inked areas before swaping the cardstock over the area.]

And then with the adorable house stamp [from studio calico], I stamped the imagine on matching pattern paper and cut-out the details to create my own embellishments.

And of course, how could any layout be complete without a bit of twine... right? I'm just having too much fun with these new colors that I just got....lol!!!

And here is another close up of the details on the layout... using the super fun rub-ons from the lily bee domestic bliss collection.
