Home Sweet Home

Here's my entry for both the CRAFT ROOM CHALLENGE and the FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGE.  Click the name or scroll down the sidebar for the link to both these fantastic challenge blogs.

The theme for both is 'Anything Goes' but FSC also ask that you use some new crafting stash received at Christmas.  Not difficult eh?

I decided to make a wall hanging using some of my new crafting goodies:  a music score rubber stamp, chipboard letters and  Distress Ink.  

I used pale blue and white acrylic paint for the canvas, mini hearts and chipboard letters and dabbed some through sequin waste to give the canvas more texture.  I used the music score stamp and Vintage Photo ink to stamp the letters and the mini wooden hearts then tore two strips of cream cotton, sprayed with Glimmer Mist in Gingerbread and when dry, stamped them with the music score as well. The image of the little girl is from a Crafty Individuals stamp.  Finally, I die cut the keys from chipboard using the Cricut and Indie Art cartridge, coloured them with the Vintage Photo ink and sprayed with glimmer mist to give a more rusty look. 

What have you done with your new goodies from Santa?

I love this Sue, it's fabulous, and it glimmers beautifully. I've never put chipboard through my Cricut, but the key's look great. Thanks for joining in with the Craft-Room Challenge, and good luck. Maria x

This is a beautiful project Sue, I like the theme of the music stamp running through the letters and the cotton.
