New Home Card #laviniastamps

For this "New Home" cad, I created a background using Distress Oxide ink pads in the following shades:  Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron and finally Antique Linen.

I then stamped the trees in the background using Lavinia Stamps "Single Skeleton Tree", "Fern Leaf" and the "Birds".  I then stamped the "Bella's House" three times on plain card (all of these were stamped in different shades of Versafine Ink).  Using Distress Inks, I masked off the bottom area of the card to create a landscape.

I coloured the houses in with Promarkers, cut them out and then positioned onto the card, sticking the central one with foam pads so that it was elevated.  I added touches of silver glitter to areas on the houses and the trees using a Signo Pen.  

Finally, I added a Papertrey Ink stamped sentiment from their "Love Lives Here" stamp set, stamped in Versafine "Black Onyx".  I punched a small grey coloured heart and stuck it above the chimney of the central house to replicate smoke.
