Take Me Gnome Country Road - Color Dare Challenge #430

Here is my Design Team Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #430 "TicTacToe" and using the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #491.  The Slimline card sketch was perfect for my new stamp set of Country Road Gnomes.  The dies came with the gnomes; but the little country road stamps were fussy-cut.  Pulled out my Copic Sketch Pens and had fun trying to match some of the colors from the TicTacToe Board (used all but Nectarine). 

The background paper was chosen for the design that looked like a map of more country roads.  Played around with positioning them, and when I found the correct balance with the sketch they were adhered with two-sided tape and foam tape for dimension to the background paper.  Used another design paper for the side borders.  Sentiment was stamped, colored and layered with the same design paper.  


Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share your project the first week you still have another week to enter that challenge... current challenges are on the side bar of the ColorMyHeart Color Dare challenge blog.  Please join us for some fun color challenges.

Slim line cards are so on trend right now. I love your gnomes and how you used the green paper to create a road map.

I think I am going to have reiterate what I said in Catherines comments and I quote. 'I am the biggest sucker for gnomes and their sentiments.. This is no exception! Your use of the Safari colors are superb and so fitting for the subject of this card.' Seriously! I love this card. Your use of a slimline card is genius. I am the biggest sucker for gnomes and their sentiments.. This is no exception! Your use of the Safari colors are superb and so fitting for the subject of this card.

Your slimline card is perfect for gnomes meandering down a country road Suzanne! Love the colours and the background paper which seems to show the gnomes aren't all that confident about which way to go!! Vicky x
