And I heard Mr Young sing about her... Hels Sunday Stamper Challenge

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Oh yes, it's in  my head now, Hels!!  I love this song, and the sentiment.  So Hels set us the challenge of Home.

I adore these Darkroom Door stamps, and the sentiment is so good too.  It also fits quite well with a Crowded House song I'd much rather live in a caravan in the hills, than a mansion in the slums - another one of my favourite bands...

Anyway, enough.   I started with a Kraft tag, which I swooshed through distress stains, including Tarnished Bronze.

I stamped the cowslips in three different colours, then added my favourite Tim birds.

I stamped one of the Darkroom Door cabins, and ripped up the edges, using some of the techniques in Tim's June tag (just haven't got to THAT this month...) and the same sort of thing for the sentiment.

The ribbon had the same sort of treatment with the Distress stains, but had to add a touch of Cosmic Shimmer Bronze blush, a) for the bling and b) to tie it all together.
