Hello my friends. It's another card for the monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art. Even though my title says card #22, this is actually a makeover of card #10. I really didn't like that one, so I covered it completely with gesso and started over.
My daughter wanted to draw words again from my inspiration jar, so the words are: happy, quilt, and background stamps. I think she just wants to see if I'm up to the challenge.
I went for my fabric and found some 2 inch squares, which worked perfectly. I chose blue and brown and attached them to the card with matte Mod Podge.
I cut the house free hand and used a burlap background (Cornish Heritage Farms) with salty ocean distress ink, and a crackle background (Judikins) with jet black archival ink for the roof. Then I sponged vintage photo distress ink over the roof and along the edges of both pieces. The windows and door were cut from navy card stock.
I printed the sentiment on my computer, cut the words apart and edged the pieces with vintage photo.
I used a white gel pen and black Sharpie marker to add quilting stitches on the house and fabric squares.
Since quilts make me happy, I used all three words, and I really love this card.
Thank you so much for spending time here with me today. Have a great weekend.
