A New Home

I've played with my new Papermania Country Companions stamps this time. Strangely it wasn't the cute little characters I reached for 1st, instead it was the lovely cottage door that I used to make this new home card with co-ordinating tag.
The image is stamped with a charcoal chalk ink so that it is not as harsh as black and I've 'painted' it with Aquamarkers.
The green patterned paper is Black Market Paper Society, I got it from Craft Obsessions along with the fibres.
The orange flowers are from a QVC kit. The lettering stamps are an old StudioG set that I have had for a couple of years now and are invaluable.

Challenges:

Oh Kate, this is lovely and I think you should maybe do more of the not-so-cutesy stuff if you do it like this - it's beautiful
