Home - Artistic Outpost

Hi Everyone! I just popped in to share a card with you all using the Home plate from Artistic Outpost. I really love this whole plate, but I don't seem to use this weathervane stamp very much. So, I pulled it out and made a quick card with it.
I also used colors that I really use (well, I use brown A LOT, but the other two colors are not ones I use very much). I don't know if they really even work well together, but I kind of like it. The ribbon I used is actually some scrapbooking trim I picked up at a closeout store. It is like suede, thick and has a rubber backing. I like the look of it, but it sure is hard to tie...probably why it ended up in the closeout store!! lol I also colored Dew Drops with a Sharpie to get the brown I wanted. I am so cheap....I buy most of my embellishments in clear, white and cream and color them myself to make them match.

Materials: PAPER: Colormates-Light Glorious Green, Doublemates-Autumn Red, Cascata - Coffee (WorldWin Papers) STAMPS: Home (Artistic Outpost) INK: Versafine - Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko), Ancient Page-Bordeaux (Clearsnap) OTHER: Heritage Trim (Karen Foster Designs), Dew Drops (Robin's Nest), Brown Sharpie, Pop Dots, Edge Distresser (Tonic), Tape N Roller Plus (Kokuyo), Paper Trimmer/Scissors (Fiskars)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creatively wonderful day!
