Gnome Place Like Home

How did it get to be Wednesday already? The bad news is that time is flying but the good news is that my meeting got cancelled for tomorrow and now I have two days that I can get some things done. I am hoping I get some craft time Thursday and Friday. Yippee! But my hubby said today he may take Friday off so that might make a difference. The card I finished tonight is for another progressive challenge.

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:
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!

This is so adorable. Love the mushroom with the image. I finally colored mine, but just so far behind with putting cards together.
