The image is a merged image. I used a Dearie Dolls Mushroom Cottage with this month's progressive image from Gerda Steiner called Gnome Couple. The card came together pretty easy. I am still playing with distress oxide inks and tried another one of Jennifer McGuire's tricks for making easy rainbows with distress oxides. After inking the card stock I sprayed the MFT Sun Ray stencil with water and held it to the card stock for a couple minutes. The water leaves the design of the stencil. Pretty cool. I colored the image with American Craft and Spectrum Noir markers and die cut it with MFT Inside and Out Stitched rounded Squares. To finish it off I used a computer generated sentiment: "There's Gnome place like Home". My youngest son and his wife are looking for their first house so I thought when they moved I would be able to send this card. I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch for inspiration.
Since the sketch had an embellishment in the top right corner of the rectangle I put the sun circle right there. I am entering these challenges:
- Gerda Steiner Progressive challenge: use Gnome Couple
- Tuesday Morning Sketches: above sketch
- Craftaholics R Us: anything goes
- The Outlawz CAS challenge: make someone laugh
- Lil Patch of Crafty Friends: anything goes
- Through the Craft Room Door: anything goes
I hope to be back tomorrow with another card after I get some shopping and housework done. Always have that to do. Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful week!
