Whiff of Joy March Release - I Serenade You

Good morning! Yay! Its Friday! I hope everyone has something fun planned for the weekend.

I started this card with what I thought was a great idea, lol, and then about half way through I had that dreaded feeling that it wasn't going to work... maybe some of you have felt that before :) But then as I kept going, it started to come together again. Relief!

The cute stamp is "I Serendae You" a new release from Whiff of Joy for March. I just love these gnomes! I've used some beautiful paper from the Whiff of Joy paper pad which is currently available HERE and also some of the fabby new button twine... which you can find HERE.

I used my Nesties lables 10 to make an Easel card and kept all of the tones nice and neutral using my Copics in the E 40's. I've used the "outside the nestie" technique so the poor gnome's feet weren't chopped off by the nestie and all of the edges are sponged with DI Old Paper.

I'm going to enter this card into these challenges....
The ABC Challenge - Ovals
Stampin for the weekend - Monochrome
Simon Says Stamp - Coffee and Cream
Craft your Passion - Dude Time
Crafty Catz - One for the men

Thanks for stopping by :) Have a lovely weekend!

  11. I think we have all had moments like that!... but its come together just beautifully!...

  12. I've had those moments quite often, but usually it doesn't come back to me when I go on. I've to put it aside for a while and than I come up with a great idea or something completely else.
