Hello Bluebird - Hey Gnomie

jeudi 20 août 2020

 Hello there,

Today we join some cute gnomes in a lovely place where trees are pink. Like always I started with the coloring. I stamped the images using Potting Soil ink by Ranger, used the coordinating dies to cut them all and my alcohol markers to color everything.

When the coloring was done, I cut the background elements out of Strathmore bristol cardstock using the new Ocean Waves Scene Horizontal die. But I kept just a few of the die cut pieces to build my scene.

And for the background I cut a strathmore bristol panel measuring 8-1/8 x 3,5" and covered it with tattered rose oxide ink to get a nice peachy panel. I added texture by splattering water all over the panel. I dried the paper using a paper towel, and next used ripe persimmon distress ink mixed with water to add some contrast. And finally for a little touch of sparkle, I added golden drops as well.

Next I colored the other background elements using oxide inks and distress inks.

For the tree house, I did the same thing as the background elements: I cut all the pieces and then added contrast and details using distress inks.

Once all my elements were colored and assembled, I attached everything on the background panel using a combination of foam squares, liquid glue and glue dots. And finally I stamped my sentiment 'Hey Gnomie' using Potting Soil ink again, and I also added clear shimmer to the butterfly's wings.
