Congratulations on Your New Home

Here’s my card for this week’s Taylored Expressions sketch challenge. I used one of the digi images from the June Chicken Girl Design release, available exclusively at i {heart} papers, for the card.

The New Home digi image is printed on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I added an airbrushed sky behind it (with the help of Chloe the cutie puppy, who was chewing my airbrush’s hose while I worked . . . something about the braided hose really interests her for some reason I can't figure out) and some Glossy Accents to cover the windows for a glass-like appearance.

I left plenty of room at the right side of the image panel to add a pretty ribbon embellishment. I stretched a piece of olive crepe ribbon over the panel and added a matching bow with a brown corduroy brad at the center.

The colored image is layered on a coordinating piece of Basic Grey’s Origins designer paper. I used another piece of Origins paper for the grid-patterned scalloped strip underneath the image. The earthy colors in the papers were perfect for finishing a warm-feeling new home congratulations card.
