30 Days of Holidays - Day "G"

      I'm still playing in the 30 Days of Holidays at Beccy's Place.  Another Thanksgiving card for today and I followed another of Beccy's tutorials, this time for a Gap card.  Other "G"s include: Green, Gel pens, Gnome, Gift, and Gold buckles.

     I colored this Beccy's image with ProMarkers and gel pens, plus a gold paint pen on his buckles, then cut it with a Tonic Studios die and rounded the corners with a Uchida punch.  I cut the gap in the card front and then used scraps of wood grain CS from DCWV on each side of the gap.  I know that traditionally these cards are held together with letters of words bridging the gap but I chose to bridge it with the image and the sentiment piece.

     I added green CS to the inside of the card and lightly embossed it with my Linen EF.  I wanted the green to match the gnome's clothing.  The sentiment was cut with an Avery Elle die.  I left it without embellishment because I'm going to use it as a masculine Thanksgiving card.


     Have a great day and Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

He's a very stoic looking elf busy at work! LOL Really love your busy at work projects too with these challenges! That's a wonderful background for your gnome and fabulous coloring too!

Fabulous card, Connie! Mr. Gnome is so beautifully colored. Love the barn wood background papers and touch of gold for the buckles. This sounds like an absolute fun challenge. I may have to check it out. Thanks for sharing at the Double D, "Thankful, Gratefull, Blessings" Challenge.

Your colouring is awesome NanaConnie, the no-line look is terrific! The wood grain paper was an excellent choice for the background, it complements all the greens perfectly. I think it was a great idea to use the image panel to bridge the gap on your card... always nice to try something different, especially when it turns out so well.
