I have two new projects to share with you today. My first card features a new set and matching dies called Shoe Sprites. The large main image in this set is a super cute hiking boot that has been turned into a gnome home. There is also a cute pair of resident gnomes that call this boot home. There are quite a few cute accessories to this set and I used them all!
I cut a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock that I inked up with using my Trinity Blending Buddy blending brushes, and 3 Distress Oxide Inks, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and a hint of Mermaid Lagoon. I splattered it with clean water, white opaque ink, then metallic gold ink. Then I cut a panel from grass green cardstock that I cut two grassy layers from. I inked just the edges of the grass pieces with Mowed Lawn and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink. After stamping my images with my stamp platform and achieving complete coverage, I colored my images with Copic markers and highlighted with white gel pen after cutting out. Then I marked where I was going to place the shoe very lightly and tucked all of my background images in place, knowing where the boot would cover. I mounted the boot on Fun foam then attached it to my panel.
I used foam tape to attach my shorter grass panel and adhered my gnomes with liquid glue. There are a few hat options in the set, and a couple of little smoke puffs as well (for the chimney), and I really love how full of fun my scene is. I combined a few words from the Happy Senti-mini set and stamped them in a word bubble from my stash. This set blends wonderfully with another new set called Mouse House that I shared on Sat.
Thank you so much for stopping by and head on over to the next blog on the list Emelie Hessler.
