Happy Birthday with the Business

Fusion: Gnomes or Sketch
Just Add Ink: Die Cut Word

I don’t have ANY gnomes, not a stamp or digi so I acted like I was a gnome and gave this card the business. The white cs base got shimmer spray blue with a circle mask in place. I then stamped my deep etched embossing folder with black ink pad and pressed the piece into that. Next I layered on a fleur-de-lis stencil and added clear gesso. Once dry I sponged orange ink. Then added dots stencil with white embossing paste in two corners and removed the circle mask. Added a gray cs circle, three strips of vellum, sentiment strip in black cs with hand drawn stitching with white gel pen. Sentiment and greenery are Silhouette cut. Greenery was sponged with green ink. Flowers are stamped with black ink then die cut, sponged with yellow and shaped. Added white enamel dots in centers of flowers and used black gel pen to add border then mounted on white cs base. I hope I did the gnomes proud.

  1. Hahaha you are one busy gnome, Bonnie, aren’t you. Stick to your story on this one because you have created another amazing mixed media, multi layered background.

  2. Your stenciled layers have created such a rich and beautiful background and I love how your die cut words really pop off the page. Thanks for sharing with us in our 500th Challenge at Just Add Ink
