Hello and I hope you have all had a lovely Easter. The weather has been lovely here, makes a pleasant change. I was busy over the Easter Weekend but I’ve not had a chance to blog my makes, so here I go with number 1 and I’ll bring you some more over the weekend .
This is a fun card I made. I received For the Love of Stamps Magazine number 3 and I saw what Lynette Jasper had made with some of the papers inside and the free stamp set. I loved her work so I based my design on her work so I am crediting her with the inspiration.
This card is a 7×7 and I started by cutting some Mirri card to fit the whole base card. Next I matted some of the paper which was in the FTLOS magazine book 3. I then cut a piece of Ink Me Cardstock which I would mount in the 6×6 mirri mat. I then used some stamping and masking to place the gnome all over the page. I kept him back and white (which Lynette did) and once I was happy with the placements I coloured the background in using my Spectrum Noir alcohol pen in CT4. Once it was done I used some left over mirri, and matted some of the left over paper and fitted it on the lower part of the design. I then stamped another gnome and coloured him in and added the sentiment (colours for the gnome BT7, FS1, DR1, JG6, True Black and a white sakura gel pen). I then mounted this onto the design. I really loved the way this design turned out and its bright and cheerful. I hope you all like it.
Thank you once again for popping by and I look forward to you stopping by again which I really appreciate.
