There's No Word Like "Home"


This weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Favourite Word".  Now, my favourite word is probably "aubergine", particularly the way that French people say it, but I don't have any stamps of aubergines and I didn't fancy making something purple!  Consequently, for the purposes of this week's challenge, my favourite word is "home".

I used Tim Holtz's Destinations and Lost and Found card stacks to cover the house, taking photographs from one of the pages and sticking them to the back of some Tim's fragments.  The grunge board letters were coloured with Distress Markers and stamped with an image from the Road Trip stamp set.  The roof was edged with tissue tape and I added a word key to each side.  To finish it off, I added a placquette to the front, and there you have it! :)

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

I am sure you can magic up an inky aubergine and indeed so much more glam sounding than egg plant! Your house is fabulous - love the chunky proportions and a great use of Tim papers!
