Hi and welcome! This month is all about masculine cards. I enjoyed looking in my stash for images I thought would fit this theme. I came up with a few different styles and techniques to keep things fresh and exciting! I hope you like them. One thing I learned is that I definitely need to make more masculine cards. Sometimes I get caught up in one theme and forget to create others. This got me out and broadened my paths of adventurous creations!
A little whimsy, a little earthy and so much to love! There truly is gnome one like him! 1. I stamped the gnome on a white card front with Versafine ink and die cut it out with a Gina Marie stitched die. 2.Next I watercolored the gnome with distress inks. For the tree I used 2-3 different green inks. This gives the image depth and interest. 3. Then I stamped the sentiment in Versafine ink. 4. Finally I mounted it on patterned paper and then again on a creme card base.
I had fun but it’s almost time to hop to the next person, Kim. Please don’t forget to comment for a chance to win a “thank you” prize. One person who comments will be randomly drawn and announced on next month’s hop. And now to announce the winner from May’s hop …….. Angela Hall!!! Congratulations Angela! Please message me your mailing address so I can send your prize in the mail.
Thank you again for joining us. I hope you found some new ideas for your future cardmaking endeavors. Until next month, may you take part in lots of wonderful things that fills you up with happiness, joy, peace and love. For me, this means I will be either in my craft room cardmaking or my backyard gardening!
Stay safe and healthy~
I am also on Instagram and TikTok @cardartbyrachel with short videos of how I made these cards. I also post videos of my backyard and my sweet, beloved dogs!
