Welcome….


To The Block!


We are officially in our new house. Before we did the big move, and were still living in the tiny house (with no a/c!) I made up a bunch of these cards. The house we built is on a new block in the community, and we are the first to move in. Since we are new to the area as well as the community I thought it would be a nice way to greet each neighbor as they move in. On the inside I will put greetings from the Killeen’s and our address.

I originally saw this card made with watercolor splashes, and well………still trying to get a handle on watercolor LOL. So I decided to give it a shot with alcohol ink, in pearls. Whoot, that was fun and turned out really cool. When I need to make more they will be easy to create again. The trick was to use an eye dropper to place alcohol blending solution and one drop of color. I started from the center out to each side. The sentiment was cut three times, twice in 120 lb paper and once in glossy card stock each glued together.



I started with 15. Hopefully that will hold me a bit!


Look how YUMMY those pearly colors are!


I embellished the envelope with that awesome splash paper I used all summer from Hobby Lobby.
