Thinking of You

Thinking of You Card by July Guest Designer Ildi Imrefalvi | Garden Mice, Little Lilies and Peony Blooms Stamp Sets by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook #handmade
I really love stamp sets that remind me of my childhood storybooks and Garden Mice is definitely that type. It combines the cutest critters with floral elements which makes it a perfect scene building set.

To start my card I Copic colored a bunch of images from this hilarious set and added elements from other two: Peony Blooms and Little Lilies. I usually colour and fussy cut more than I need, I found this very helpful while assembling the cards. 

For the background I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper to approx 5x5 inch and sprayed it with Oxide sprays. Watercolor cardstock has an uneven surface and special texture which I thought to be fun for my garden scene.

After white heat embossing the sentiment onto the middle of the background I started to build and arch shaped scene from the colored elements. I used foam dots of various thickness to make the dimensions more interesting. 

I planned to have splatter of white acrylic paint on all over the background, but I totally forgot about it, so I decided to put small dots with my gel pen here and there as a finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by
Hugs,
