For this friendship card I decided to use and older My Favorite Things stamp set: You Gnome Me.
I started on the background. I first stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, with white embossing powder from Ranger. I then blended three Distress Ink colors onto the background. I started with Crushed Olive on the bottom, then added Peacock Feathers and a little bit of Mermaid Lagoon towards the top. I also die cut Grassy Border and blended it with Crushed Olive Distress Ink.
I die cut the word friend, from Words For Friends, three times from white cardstock. I stacked them and added the word to the background.
I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Skin: E00 - E11
Beard: W0 - W3
Flower pot: E31 - E33
Flowers: G07 - G28/ Y02/ YR16
Pants: B93 - B95
Hat + shirt + shoes: R14 - R17
Toadstools: E41 - E43/ YR61 - YR02
Snail: BG93 - BG96/ E08 - E18
I fussy cut the images and added them to the panel. I adhered the panel onto a Cilantro cardbase.
It's Always fun to use older sets.
