Happy New Home

Good morning Alicia here today with a Happy new home card.  As soon as I saw the Die Versions Whispers Grandfather clock I envisioned a scene.  I found the Spellbinders D Lites Artistocrat a perfect fit in my new home scene.  I had fun piecing together several cuts in different papers to create a detail.  I added both cuts to a wallpaper feeling background paper to create my warm home like scene.

I cut both the clock and deer out twice using different papers.  I then cut pieces apart and put them back together mixing the papers.  Some of the pieces were pretty small, I found a precision glue pen the best to adhere.  I also fussy cut a back piece for the inside of the clock out of chipboard.  I used chalking ink to color it brown.  I inked all the edges with the same chalking ink, I find this adds cohesiveness to the piece.

Here are some pictures of the details:
