'H' is for Homeland

The forth letter in the The Craft Barn alpha challenge is 'H' and I have chosen to use the word 'Homeland'.  I am also entering this into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show which is 'the stamp you love (but don't use)'.  This is one of my favourite stamp sets so I couldn't use just one!!

As with the previous challenges, I started with the 6x7 inch white card stock base but forgot to punch the 2 holes until after I'd taken the photo, these have now been added this page will be added to my alpha dictionary book along with the 3 so far.  I glued down my torn out dictionary page and covered the definition before spritzing the page using Dylusions London blue, post box red and white linen ink sprays. I edged with Tim Holtz barn door and faded jeans distress inks.  Next I stamped all of the stamps from the Artistic Outpost London underground set in black ink.  Finally and to to be consistent I doodled around the dictionary word and definition and covered with Ranger glossy accents before adding my Tim Holtz alphabet letter and stamping my chosen word onto black card stock.
Thanks for looking!
