I'm featuring the darling Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set in handmade cards for my part of the blog tour. I love this new stamp set!
For this quick and easy card, I used the girl gnome stamp on watercolor paper. By using a small piece of watercolor paper and an aquapainter, I can do actual watercoloring in just minutes and achieve that great artist look on my focal piece. This is a great way for beginners to start watercoloring without being overwhelmed or frustrated. Scroll down for supply list for this card.
Below is a somewhat dressier version of the same card, employing different shapes, a more feminine color scheme, ribbon instead of Bakers Twine, and a Rhinestone Brad instead of a Brights Button. See how just a few small changes can make a big difference? I like both these cards. Which do you prefer?
This Gnome Sweet Gnome girl is colored with markers on this handmade card, whereas the card above is done with traditional watercoloring. Different looks, different tools, same Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set. We did the pink one in my January stamp clubs and everyone had a great time. Scroll down for supply list for this card.
