I Dig You

Just Us Girls Challenge #650 – Color Week

As I was working with 2 of these colours yesterday, I decided that adding a 3rd would be easy and this card was the result. When I initially began the card the only thing I knew for sure was that I would be using this MFT stamp set and dies, (called You Gnome Me) but had no specific plan in my head. I began with the card base which is not quite brown and not quite orange but a muted version of both and the white panel. Before actually stamping anything I laid the stamps on the white piece to see what they might look like and decided that they would need some grounding so I added the thin brown strips using my T-ruler to keep them even and straight. Then I stamped the images on a scrap piece, coloured them using Inktense pencils and some Sakura glaze and then die cut them. I added foam tape on both pieces but a little thicker version on the boot image and placed them on the strips as you see. I stamped the sentiment at the top and added a smaller brown strip underneath it. I also went over the sentiment with a glitter pen. Then I stamped the tiny snails, coloured and die cut them and added them at the bottom of the piece. The grassy layer behind the image panel is some packaging that I kept and I decided to add some of it here for a background to the rest. This card works as a masculine card and as I have several masculine birthdays coming up, one of them will receive it. Thanks for looking.
