My Favorite Things - March Release Countdown - 5 Days To Go!

Hello!  So excited to be part of the My Favorite Things Countdown to their March release (March 16th).  My card today features the new Birdie Brown stamp set called Spring Gnomes.

To create this card I first used the Rolling Clouds Stencil and Grassy Edges Stencil to create a background panel.  I blended Distress Oxides for this background.

I then used the brand new Garden Gate Die-namics to die cut the white picket fence and pretty gate.  I backed this with foam tape and applied it to the scene and I like how you can see the long grass through the fence openings as you peer in at angles. 

On Copic friendly cardstock I stamped my Spring Gnomes images and coloured them using the following Copic colours:-

BG 70, BG000, BG11, G00 and BG32.
RV10, RV63 and RV02
YR21, YR20, Y21, YR31, Y19 and Y38

I die-cut the Spring Gnomes using the coordinating Die-namics and either glued directly or added 1 or 2 layers of foam tape for some super dimension!!  Points were highlighted with a white gel pen.

To finish up the card I used gel pens to dot in some grass and texture around the cute gnomes to ground them a little.

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink and heat embossed in silver to a tag from Mini Mail Die-namics.  This was applied with foam tape and a finally a few pearly white sequins were added as finishing accents.
