Happy Good Friday everyone! Hope you are all well and sane! I have a spring card to share today. Hope this card will cheer you 🙂
I did a lot of masking on this card. The gnomes are from Simon Says Stamp Spring Gnomes stamp set. This set has coordinating dies but I do not have them. When I do not have matching dies for a stamp set, I use masking technique to add background to the stamped image or even create a scene or a floral cluster. Anyway, on this card, I stamped the gnomes first, masked and used the negative of the circle mask on the card front, to sponge distress inks.
I then removed the gnome masks and coloured them using copic markers. I really enjoyed colouring the gnomes. Also lately I am trying to use pastel colours and really loving it. Although I am in autumn season here in the southern hemisphere, I really love eye pleasing pastel colours. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set simply stamped using black ink. A few white rhinestones, finishes off the card.
I am hoping little things like sharing a card helps lift your spirits during this pandemic. I know it does for me as I browse through cards on social media and blog.
Thank you for stopping by. Please stay home and take care. Happy Easter!
