I am playing catch up with the Craft Barn Alphabet challenge, and here is my H entry. H is for Home and Hell! And sometimes both simultaneously!!
This is quite a simple two piece, based on the lovely pearlescent Centura Pearl card. I cut two pieces the same size (ish), and coloured one with Pan Pastels (the first time I have had them out!!) to get to the flames of hell. It's a real mixture of colours, and there's also a couple of other hard artist pastels included, as I didn't have a good orangey colour. It's edged with a permanent black marker, and a touch of festive berries Distress Ink. I doodled some flames on to finish it off. Doodling's not really my strong point...
I used the lovely Darkroom Door Home stamp on the other piece, and masked it. The sentiment is also from Darkroom Door. Then I coloured the rest of it with Distress Ink, Mowed Lawn, and then stencilled over it in the same colour. I ripped the card, and edged it with the mowed lawn again (well, mowing the lawn is my idea of hell....), and stuck the two pieces together. I added a bit of shadow around the torn edge.
As usual, the definitions (carefully cut from the Collins Concise Dictionary, as cutting into it is still giving me a bit of the jitters) are attached to the tag, which has a wooden H glued on, and a ribbon coloured with ink sprays.
Hope you like it!
