Hello readers! Today I am honored to have been asked to join Alex Syberia in sharing her latest release of digital stamps. This was the first time I have been able to participate in one of her new releases due to scheduling conflicts, but I'm happy it's filled with lots of Christmas and wintery goodness. Alex Syberia has also just released her first line of acrylic stamps with Maker Forte and I can't even begin to image how proud and excited she is to see her digital stamp dreams come true in physical form.
Alex is a brilliant artist with a flair for flowers and you have to check out her unique dot coloring!
For my card today, I have colored the slimline gnomes in a variety of pinks, reds and greens for a fresh modern whimsical take on these mythical beings. Pleae keep reading to see how I created this card. . .
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit into a regular #10 business sized mailing envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card is made from Real Red cardstock. Using the Newton's Nook Slimline Frame, I cut the frame from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I used a pink piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes paper for the background. I colored the gnomes with Copic markers and then fussy cut the entire image out as one piece to adhere in front of the pink watercolor background. I adhered the gnome image using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I used a Uniball white gel pen to create different sized white dots to resemble snow on both the background and the gnomes themselves.
