CC239, C4C4 Home Sweet Home

Happy Wendesday everyone...we are half way through the work week so hang on! Wow this card took me a long time to get it all organized and put together but in the end I am really very happy with how it came out.

I knew I wanted to use my Home Sweet Home set by There She Goes, I've been dieing to ink it up since I received it, and I knew it would look really nice with this weeks SCS CC239. I started last night by stamping the fire place and the flames/logs. I stamped the fire and logs, colored with my copics and cut it out. I then colored my firplace by using both a Grey Watercolor Pencil and my Shin Han Marker so that I could get the light to dark shading for the stones. I popped the fire up on dimensionals and place in the fire place. The fireplace is also cut out and popped up on dimensionals

Ok now the hard part.....which accessories to use. There are so many to choose from in this set! This is where I think I lost the most time-LOL- I kept changing the mantle pieces. I finally went back to the candles on either corner and then the vase of flowers. All were colored with copics. I used Glossy Accents on the candle holders and vase so that they look like glass and then on the hearts in the sentiment for texture. All y images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and my paper is Sahara Sand, Whisper White and SU Wintergreen DP. Ribbon is SU White Organza.

I just joined the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog today and while taking a look at recent posts I found this great sketch C4C4 by Cindy Haffner, I just knew that I had to give it a try and I thought it would be great for this card. Thanks for a great sketch!
