Gnome-down with Karrie!


So...the other night I open up my e-mail to find a notification that one of my stamping idols posted a comment to my meager little blog. The comment went something like this:

"A MONTH SINCE YOU LAST UPDATED????? What the HECK?? LOL I miss you...come out and play. I will if you will... :) "

That stinker Karrie (whom at my discretion I may refer to as 'The NAG' from time to time) dangled a tempting little carrot in front of my nose in the way of a challenge. For your viewing pleasure, we are using some of our recently acquired stamps from the Odd Bird Planet. We both fell in love with the new Gnomes from the OBP line. If you've never been to Odd Bird Planet, I highly recommend it (although be warned, you may leave with your wallet feeling a little lighter)! LOL! While you're there, you should check out the cute owls that Karrie designed. They can be found in the new releases section (along with the gnomes). I picked up every single one of them so you can expect to see something cute made with these stamps soon!

I wish that you could see how sparkly this card is! I hand drew the polka dots on the mushroom cap and then covered the spots with Martha Stewart chunky white glitter. I then used my Copic Spica glitter pens all over for some extra shimmery goodness! The scene was masked and the sky and grassy area were sponged. The rest of the scene was watercolored. If you click on the picture, you may be able to pick up on a little bit of the sparkle.

Karrie and I will probably have another challenge of sorts after the new The Cats Pajamas release. You all know how much I *heart* Sprinkle! Please stop by Karrie's blog and check out her card. I'm sure that she'll be posting it soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
