Seasons Greetings

This is "Seasons Greetings".

This image comes from Picket Fence Studios latest release, and is called Merry Good Gnome. I am fussy about what Gnomes I like and for this one  it was the "Suit" that got me, awesome!

I first did the background using A Colorful Life Design stencil called Classic Snowflake Stencil. Using my Platinum original machine my stack is the embossing tan mat, the "stencil" then the damp cardstock ending with the blue plate.

If need be I will add shims when needed, which normally consist of one piece of Hammermill cardstock, which is 100#. It is rare that I need another shim.

To make the background I trim up my embossed piece then drag the ink lightly across the impressions, being sure to use a light touch. I am not concerned if I get extra ink on the card, it adds to the look.

For the leftover piece that I cut off from the 5.5 inch piece that I started with, I add this to a piece of Hammermill cardstock for inside my card.

For colouring of the Gnome I am using Copic markers as follows: Tree trunk E59, E74; Tree branches are G07 and YG25; Baubles and lights are RV06, YG05, BG11, R27, B02, R22, G02; Shoes 110; Fur B00, B01; Hat R27, R39; Beard C1, C3; Nose E42.

The sentiment is by Spellbinders called Christmas Sentiments, which I foiled with Turquoise foil using my Gemini Foiling Platform with Gemini Jr. machine.

To the background I added splatters of white shimmer using a mix of Perfect Pearls and water, which I have in a small bottle.

Once the card was dry I attached the Gnome using foam squares, then attached the sentiment using thin foam squares.

I so wish you could see the sparkle, it is so pretty. Thank you for your visit today.

See you next time.
