No Place Like Home with Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog Challenge #6

Challenge #6 Sketch Challenge, with a Twist is the challenge for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. 

Use the sketch  as inspiration for creating your project. You can modify the sketch to create a card, scrapbook layout, altered canvas, mini book cover, and so on. Now, for the TWIST! You must search your hoard and find one item that is OLD and one item that is NEW and use them BOTH on your project. Show us how you combine older items from your stash with something recently purchased.
There's No Place Like Home Card is my project showing off the sketch. My NEW or almost new product is Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar just because I haven't used much out of my paper pads since I purchased it so I am going to count it as my "new". LOL
For my old is the Wizard of Oz Stamp Set from Hampton Arts that I have had since the collection came out, at least 2 or so years ago...first time used and I am positive not the last. I stamped Dorothy and her little dog Toto twice on Bazzil card stock and using my Copic Markers colored the images in, fussy cut all the pieces out and layer them together with small pop dots prior to placing them on my card base that was layered together.
 I punched out my little flowers using a McGill Punch and rolled them using their flower tools,adding different color and style of bling to the centers.

Another product that is really old is my die cut from Cottage Cozy, it has to be at least 3 years old and again the first time I used it but thought it fit the design of the sketch perfectly. The sentiment and little walking bricks are both on the Wizard of Oz stamp set....I hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch challenge and I look forward to seeing what you create using it, make sure to link up you project using Mr. Linky on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog and for further details on the challenge just go HERE!!! for more inspiration check out the rest of the CHACB Design Team...Hugs Pammejo
