Flower power over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

(Please scroll down for my Ladybug Crafts Ink DT post)

It's a new challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar!  And this week we are challenging you to flower power!  And this week we are being sponsored by Whimsie Doodles and I used their uber cute Go Big Gnome digi stamp from one of their newer releases...

 
 


Cute, huh?!  She was sooo much fun to colour in!  I gave her highlights her with Copic Opaque White - I don't normally do this as I'm not that keen on the effect, but I thought it would give it that shiny ceramic look that garden gnomes have - I likey!  Think I'll be doing more of this!

For that border, I used felt - this card is so tactile, I can feel it from the photo, lol!!  I tried using some cheap felt I had in my stash but it never cuts properly and now I only use the felt I buy from Ladybug Crafts Ink (here) - the quality is amazing and cuts like butter!  I also used my Grand Nestabilities for all that matting so I have super perfect lines - much better than my usual "do it by eye and nevermind it's slightly wonky" look!!

Anyway, I hope you like! You can see the other DT inspirational makes here - you won't be disappointed!

Thanks for visiting and see you tomorrow with a special celebration!!
