Think INK #20 - Home Is Where the Heart Is Card

As I mentioned the other day the latest Think INK challenge is up over on the Artful INKables blog - #20. This bi-weekly challenge has you use the following 'recipe' on your creation: 3 buttons, 2 pieces of ribbon, 1 circle.

I decided to use the Any Birdy Home set from Artful INKables to complete my challenge card. I stamped one of the three birdhouses in the set onto the Kraft cardstock mat in an off-white ink. Next I stamped a second copy of the same image, but punched out a 1 1/4" circle of the image. The circle is the only part of the image I colored in.

I noticed when I was putting on the patterned paper strip, that it was covering the bottom part of the birdhouse image. To avoid that I carefully cut around some of the leaves at the bottom of the image and slipped the paper strip underneath that.

For my three buttons I used clear buttons and on the back of the middle one I adhered a piece of the striped paper that mats the image block. These are on top of a sheer piece of ribbon, and a second piece was threaded and tied through the center button.

Make sure to stop back by on Monday for an Artful INKables New Release Blog Hop!
