Home sweet home
Well my week is a bit crazy already - backposting from thursday - I was sposed to be off monday and tuesday but a co-worker is out sick and to balance out the staffing a bit I switched and worked instead. It gives me 5 days off in a row starting wednesday but boy I can sure tell I am not as young as I used to be after 4 - 12 hour shifts in a row.....
I did this card for the first of the release week challenges over at Flourishes which is a 'home sweet home ' decor challenge. Pick something from your home and use it as inspiration for a card. I picked the vase you see in the first photo - I just loved the colors and patterns when I found this one and the 2 others in the set at a thrift store, so they came home with me.
The base layer is kraft cardstock that I stamped and embossed with gold the flourish background from Flourishes and then sponged inks into the 4 sections to match the colors in the vase and the flowers.
I layered the main image to dark brown paper and added some bronze accents with a viva decor pen.
