AAA Cards Challenge #193: Sketch + Critters, with video


This fornight we're playing with a sketch over at AAA Cards Challenges and the optional twist of Critters was chosen by Joy.

For my card I flipped the sketch upside down, you can do that as long as we can see the sketch in your card.

I've masked off a strip at the bottom and instead of making it straight I went for grass as I thought critters live in grass, hadn't decided on which critter I would use just yet, but figured you can't go wrong with grass. Applied Distress ink Mowed lawn and for the "sun" Mustard seed and carved pumpkin. 

Now I went with the circle in the sketch, but offset it a little as my cardbase if rectangular,

not square as in the example. but as it could be any shape, my gnome could have been the circle with in the sketch. I just thought this would look more recognizable.

the Gnome was in my precoloured stash and is from StampinBella (the Gnome and the Birdie). For the sentiment I went with one from Woodware stamps (Good Friends set) and stamped it with Versafine ink and then heat set it.

Mounted the Gnome with foamtape and adhered it on top.

For more information, or to play along the AAA Cards Challenge, see this.


  1. This card makes me smile every time I see it. Lovi g the offset circle of sunshine and the grass edge is a fab idea.

  2. What a great idea using the circle as a sun!!!

  3. Is he going to pick his nose? Very cute! Thanks for having me as your GDT!

  4. Love this gnome! Wonderful card!
