Home Sweet Home "Stripes" Challenge

 Yes again I joined along with Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog with their weekly challenge which this week was create something with "Stripes"!! I started out with creating a small wall hanging art and turned it into a home sweet home wall art, that will be proudly displayed in my living room, for I love how it turned out.
 The based is cut out of black chipboard, and covered with one of my favorite paper lines Graphic 45 (paper collections I used: Baby 2 Bride-Baby Button Bingo, Botanicabell-Dragonfly Duet, Commuique-Shutter Speed, Renaissance Fair-Enlighted, Playtimes Past-Jack & Jill, G45 Collection-Die Cut Alphabet 2)

 "Stripes" Tattered Floral Die Cuts and Cagedbird Die Cut (cage and bird). Studio 490-leaf stamp: (Ticket To Art) Archival Black Ink, along with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Brushed Cordury, Walnut Stain). I also used Distress Embossing Ink and Tarnished Gold embossing powder by Ranger to make the grunge paper key look weathered and old. Embellished the wall art with Tim  Holtz Idea-ology metals ( washers, brads, jump rings, foliage).
Added some Distress Stickles (Vintage Photo) to give the home a little weathered worn look and my Home Sweet Home peice of art is ready to be hung and admired.
