Sanded Earth Tones

I am drawn again and again to the Home plate by Artistic Outpost. This Faux Sanding technique from Technique Junkies is a great match for the country vintage feel of this plate.

Wondering where I got the matching photo corners? I just used kraft colored ones and then inked them up with Really Rust ink. To make the flourishes a little different, I inked them with the rainbow pad when I stamped on top of the faux sanded background.

Heading Home
Stamps: Home and Rooster collage from Home plate and flourishes from the Serenity plate (Artistic Outpost)
Cardstock: Really Rust (Stampin Up); glossy cardstock (Stampland Chicago)
Ink: Really Rust (Stampin Up); Faded Vintage Rainbow Chalk pad (Memories); Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Other: gesso, paintbrush, photo corners, brayer

Home is where you store your stamps! Have a wonderful ink-filled day!
