Congratulations

Sharing a card today I made for a friend who has recently purchased a new home - like brand new!!  It's gorgeous but she's been struggling as she's been through some very difficult times recently the most difficult being losing her husband to cancer early this year.  She has two beautiful young girls and is now trying to take small steps forward - although this is a huge step!

I used Stampin Up's 'Up in the Air' stamp set and stamped using Basic Grey ink onto some watercolour paper.  I then used my SU markers and a blender pen to add colour to the image.  I used a watercolour wash of Baja Breeze ink on the back background.  Love how this turned out, especially using the Basic Grey ink as it seemed to soften the image.

One of the unintentional but really cool things that happened when stamping the image was the little birdhouse didn't come out as solidly inked as I had wanted.  But then I realized it actually looked like it had a lot of texture, as if it was shingles or something, so I was quite impressed.
