Home Sweet Home


Im on my way...Im on my way...Home Sweet Home!!LOL!! Sorry had to do it!
Im so glad to be back home. Tonight I have a card to share with you I made a few weeks ago. I used MFT I heart books set. I got this set at CHA. It was a must have for me because my kids LOVE to read. I think this bookworm is just soooo cute!! Alana loves to play the computer game bookworm too so thats what she thought it was when she saw the card!LOL! I colored the worm and books using copics using the colors from my MM dp and added ground using prismacolor pencils. Crystal effects were added to the glasses for a little shine. I sponged some versamagic sage ink to the top while my image was still in the nestie. I used my nail to distress the edges of the dp for an worn look. To finish off my card I added a sentiment and finally found a use for the library clips I have!!LOL! I also added two mini buttons. I love these tiny buttons! So cute! I love how this turned out!!
Stamps: I heart books-MFT
Paper: PTI white, coredinations blue and brown, MM dp slab from Michaels
Ink: memento, copics (forgot to write them down)
Accessories: mini buttons, library clip, crystal effects, rectangle nesties, dimensionals

Man I wish my son loved to read..he fights it every night. I hate MAKING him read. I want him to love it someday..This image is adorable Shannon.. I really like your sponging on the top. It draws your eye to the image. Great job.
