“ New Neighbors” Card

“ New Neighbors” Card

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a new project featuring several Lavinia stamps, Distress Oxide Sprays and Glitter Gel Pens and some chalk pastels!  I'm calling this project "New Neighbors". It is a 7"x7" panel matted on a piece of 7-1/2" x 7-1/2" and then both matted on 8"x 8" black cardstock.  The panel is 110 lb white cardstock and the mats are 65 lb colored cardstock. 
This card features:
The Tree of Hope
The Tree of Courage
Fairy Path
Hobbit Home Large
Wild Hares Set Large
To begin this project, I started by building the background. I used Distress Oxides - Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass. I also used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Coral, however you can substitute this color with Spiced Marmalade or Abandoned Coral.
I stamped all the Images with Versa Fine Onyx Black, this can be substituted with Versa Fine Clair, Nocturne.
To ground the trees and home I used a piece of torn paper and simply inked over the edge with Oxide inks.  I also brought out the colors with chalk pastels.  Pan Pastels can be used for this technique.  I highlighted all the stamping with Gelly Roll Glitter Pens and a White Gelly Roll Pen.
