Funky Fossil Designs "In the neighbourhood" new home card

Here's a "new home" card I made using Funky Fossil Designs products.

I started by applying two lines of low tack masking tape across a piece of white card, about two inches apart.

Within the lines of masking tape I applied three shades of Archival Inks using blending brushes.  I used the Pink Peony, Orange Blossom and Cornflower Blue shades covering the rectangle.

Over the top of the blended ink area, I lay the Funky Fossil "In the neighbourhood" stencil, securing with a tab of low tack tape and used "Cornflower Blue" Ranger Archival Ink with a blending brush through the stencil.

I removed the stencil and the masking tape, then added little white dots of gel pen to the sky above the houses, just to break up the colour a little.

Finally, I added the "Home - is the nicest word there is" sentiment, which is part of the Funky Fossil "Home" stamp set, stamped in Versfine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I then stuck the piece to the front of a card blank.
