Having had a few problems with getting my head around the updated Silhouette software for my Portrait cutting machine, I thought I would try again. When I loaded up the program, I was aghast to see that another update was necessary! Fortunately I think it must have been just a tweak rather than a completely new set up, so I was able to go ahead and make this 'home' word for this card. I cut it about 4 four times and stacked them to give some dimension then coloured with Copic pens. The dry embossing is from Cuttlebug and the house I think was a little cheapie die from Hobbycraft. I wrote the 'sweet home' using the computer with the same font as the cut word, in a size to fit under the 'm'.
Time out - Home Sweet Home
Here is another try at a Stencil Monoprint. I used a stencil from Tando Creative. I inked it with various shades of green Distress Ink and spritzed liberally with water before pressing onto some cardstock. I covered it with a piece of paper to press down all over the stencil and in fact as the stencil was really wet, I got a good impression on the paper too. I'll use that for something else.
I die cut the W&W hello from the image and also three more times from white card which I added underneath in order to give the dimension necessary to be able to actually read the word! I mounted the palin card onto a base of textured card to give a little contrast. IRL the colour of the two types of cardstock is much closer in shade than it appears on the picture.
