New Home Card with Peg Stamps and Alcohol Inks

 Hello everyone!  This will be my first post for a blog challenge in AGES!  I mentally haven’t been able to keep up with all the challenges, but I am feeling a lot more organized in the past couple weeks and am ready to start creating for challenges again.  

I also needed to make a new home card for a stamping friend!  It was important to me that I use alcohol inks on this card, as she is a big fan of them and I know she will enjoy them.

I used NBUS items on this card.  The alcohol ink cardstock for the background is the brushed silver variety, and I had not tried that before.  That did give a fun look and it is kindof a matte finish, which is neat!  

I also used some old and some NBUS peg stamps.

That alcohol ink background is very dreamy, Heidi, and it works perfectly with your sweet panel using the peg stamps. I just love the Scandinavian font of the HOME and how you added the sweet bird and nest. She will treasure this. Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
