Scrapwest Challenge - Changing Colours


My contribution to the Scrapwest Challenge of Changing Colours was this little house card made with blues and greens - colours I feel I dont use enough off and will use more in the future. I love how this turned out. The back of the card is metal foil which was placed in a cuttlebug embossing plate and it was then coloured with alcohol inks.

Me Again - Wow what a wonderful surprise when I got this card in the post today! Thanks so much, and in all honesty the photo doesn't do it justice. For anyone else reading this, the key and leaves on the front are metal embellishments, and the inside is lined with velvet. It is so tactile I can't put it down!!!! Thank You. xxxx
