Happy Hauntings on Your New Home

Today I'd like to share a new release image from Polka Dot Orchard called Come On Over by artist Jeanie Hays.  This package comes with the house image and four sentiments and is currently on SALE!

I made this very special card for my brother and sister in law who have recently moved back to SC from Texas and closed on their new home last week.  What a perfect sentiment and timing to send to them!

To make this card, I sized the image to fit on an A2 sized card front and added the sentiment close to the roof.  I colored the house with my copic markers.  Next I took a circle die of Gina K's Magic Mask and masked the sentiment area.  I used antique linen Oxide ink to go around the masking circle to give it the glowing moon effect.  Then I used two shades of lavender oxides on the remainder of the background for a night time effect.  I added a black and gray liner before securing to the white card base. 

I hope you will check out this design and all the others along with the stencils, ribbons and fall embellishments that are now available on the Polka Dot Orchard site.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
