My post title is the sentiment stamp I used on this card. Wouldn't it be great if we all found peace at home? I used a Studio 490 stamp for Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper Week 168 which has a theme of homes/houses.
This photo is from my Grandmother's house, and she's pictured with 5 of her 6 children in the late 1930s. It's not a great photo in terms of clarity, but film was super-expensive then and it was a big deal that they took the picture at all. She lived in that house with my grandfather till they were each in their mid-90s, and had been married over 70 years.
I've recently become familiar with Lisa Somerville's weekly challenge, and I'm jumping in for this week's sketch challenge: Bloggers Challenge #226. My papers are Basic Grey. The photo is showing purple but really this is a rich brown with hints of pink/purple a lot more subtle than they show in the pic. Think browns and greens behind a sepia photo.
I used my Cricut to cut the large circle, stamped it with a Hero Arts script stamp in Timber Brown Staz-on and then embossed with clear powder. I heat embossed the Studio 490 sentiment the same way, added some faux pearls around the circle and a Foofala fabric flourish on top. Everything is edged in Ranger's brushed corduroy distress ink.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I appreciate it, and hope you have a wonderful day!
