Hi all, I'm here a bit late today as I didn't get a chance to post last night....life kind of took over. ...But I am here and at least on fhe right day. This month Kelly sent us all kits. What an awesome surprise and a huge undertaking for Kelly. She managed to get them all out despite some "life" interuptions. Thank you Kelly for your generosity. I appreciate your hard work.
Here are the details for the kit Kelly sent:
I live in Miami and we are all about the beach and tropics and a popular saying here, as well as stickers on nearly every car, is #SaltLife! I looked through my stash and saw this ‘roaming gnome’ ready for summer and bought the matching paper for us to use. The rest is all from my stash.
Image: Photo Play Tulla and Norbert's Excellent Adventure Collection and matching paper collection and stamped onto #110 Recollections with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Embellishments are from my stash: Altenew enamel dots, prima flower, brads are Making Memories, etc\ Ribbons: Hobby Lobby, misc brands
I thought this little gnome was so cute. I couldn't wait to color him up. I used colored pencils to color him and a copic pen to color the flamingo. Kelly sent such pretty papers I wanted to use as many as I could. I went searching for a layout and came up with this split closure tri card from Dawn Griffith. It really caught my eye and I was able to use 4 of the dsp I recieved in the kit On the front of the card I used the bakers twine, flowers and yellow sticky dots. I mounted my gnome on dimentionals before mounting him on the layered rectangle and then mounted the gnome/background on the bottom layer of the card. I struggled a bit with the card at first but it then fell into place rather quickly.
Here is my card:front inside
