Ismaki Sketch 14
I have based this card on this weeks sketch at Ismaki. I found this one so difficult but after rotating the sketch this is what I managed to come up with. I stamped the steps by Magnolia onto white card which I then cut into a circle using a Nestabilities die. I have stamped the Goblin's Grass also by magnolia onto the circle using Antique Linen Distress Ink and then I added some Adriondak Pesto ink to make the background a little darker. I stamped the Goblin's Fungi and Sitting William onto white card and coloured them with Prismacolors and Sansador. I then added Glossy Accents to the fungi so they are nice and shiny. I stuck the Basic Grey paper to the card and then added 8 eyelets (praying I didn't make a mistake!!) and threaded them with garden twine. The sentiment is from Penny Black and the buttons are from Basic Grey - I had to add the extra one as I don't like even numbers of embellishments!!
I know that a lot of people aren't too keen on the Goblins but I think William is so cute and he really reminds me of someone!!
