Whimsical Wishes Card

Hello everyone :-D  

Yesterday I spent most of the day playing with my very first and brand new Paper Smooches stamps. Fun!!! :-D Today I want to share with you a Whimsical Wishes Card I made using them. 

Making this card, I was inspired with gorgeous card from 1001 cartes by Francine Vuillème. You can see her gorgeous card here.
First I stamped this cute gnome from Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set, colored him with colored and aquarell pencils, fussy cut him and colored edges with black fine liner. 
Using blending tool, I colored white paper with Mustard Seed Distressed Ink (I love this yellow) and splattered it with water. This is the first time I did this when coloring with distressed ink and I love it! :-D 
I added dimensional foam behind gnome and placed him onto a card. 
At the end I stamped sentiment and flowers from Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set onto colored layer. 

Card dimensions are 105 mm x 148 mm (4 1/8" x 5 7/8").

  • Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy'

  • white paper 160 grams
