Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Seascape Gnome from the May releases. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Seas Every Opportunity” and “Be Shore of Yourself”! I don’t know about you, but I love walking along a beach to collect seashells. It’s always so much fun!
To make the card, I first imported the image into Microsoft Word and printed it out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and a second copy onto regular copy paper using my HP Printer. Using my Brother Scan and Cut, I cut out the image from the copy paper. I used this as a mask to put over my main image. With the mask in place, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Broken China and Tumbled Glass along with cloud stencils I had created using Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) set.
Once this was completed, I removed the mask and began to colour in the water and sand. It was now time to colour my gnome. I unfortunately colured the first layer for the bottom of the beard blue, thinking it was part of the robe he was wearing. Uggggh! I didn’t want to start over, so I just finished colouring the mustache with my Copic markers and then tried to see if I could use the same colours to colour over the blue. It didn’t quite work out a 100%, so I decided to use my PrismaColor Pencils to colour over top of the Copic markers. This seemed to fix it. I moved on to finish the rest of image.
After I was satisfied with the colouring of the image, I trimmed it down to 5.25″ x 4″. I applied double-sided tape to the back of the image and adhered it to a card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ to complete my card.
