Gnome Home

I've been working for a few days on a special project and I'm happy to report I am finished! I decided to go old school and pull out my colored pencils, odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps. Yep, I did it and for once can say I actually got a happy result. Yay me! I tried very hard to do shading and multicolor blending using only these old school supplies. I also pulled out a paper pack that I've been coveting for years, DCWV Once Upon A Time papers. Pulled out all the stops for this project. When I was done with the card, I knew it was already busy cuz of the papers, but I felt it really needed more. I added sequins to the roof rocks, Glaze and Gelly Roll Pens to various places. The big bow took me a good bit of patients and a looong ribbon of creamy seam binding. I tied this baby all by hand, didn't use my Bow Easy this time! I did add pop dots to the image that I fussy cut and to the dark purple layer.

 
This image is actually a digi stamp. The 1st time I've used one successfully. The image came from Make It Crafty, Mushroom House. I have fallen in love with this site! There are images here you'd never be able to find in the market place. I created this card as part of a DT call. I added the links in this paragraph and my side bar. I just really liked their site and thought I'd try. But, now it's time to get my chores done before bed time! Happy Saturday night my friends! TFSB
