New Home Card

Hi everyone, a card, yay!  This card only took me three days to create but I got there in the end. :-)  Our son has just moved into student accommodation.  So a room to himself, ensuite and small kitchenette plus a kitchen, laundry, lounge and balcony to share with 6 other people.  He loves it.  As this is his first place of his own I thought it deserved a card.  Not having any house images I decided to use this mushroom image from The Paper Shelter.  I wanted to stick to greys and blacks as they are the colours in my sons new doona cover, plus try to keep it more manly. :-)  So I dragged out my Copic nice to colour again.  Was amazed at how many pens I used to colour this image so took a photo of them all (see below).  I used the July Sketch layout from Craftmad. The card - the base card is Grey Linen Textured cardstock, a panel of black glitter paper, a layer of red bazzill cardstock topped with a metallic red paper, all from Blue Edge Crafts.  The red metallic paper I ran through my Cuttlebug Branches embossing folder.  I then dug out my hexagon Spellbinder dies and finished with a gold sticker sentiment.
