Wild Flower Gnome in the Spotlight

     A new month means a new challenge at The Paper Funday, an Anything Goes papercraft challenge with an optional twist.
     For this card I have used a SheepSki design called Wild Flower Gnome. I chose to make a simple card with the spotlight method.
     Two copies of the image were printed at the same time, making sure they were the exactly the same size. One image was kept for the base layer and one was cut with a circle die to give two spotlights.
     Using alcohol markers I coloured the two discs and added a little gold pen to the flower centres. For the mat layer I used the same marker as the disc background on a piece of white card, only the outer edge was coloured which gave me the perfect colour match.
     I mounted the discs onto the background before layering up, just incase it went wrong I would only need another background layer. To give wiggle room to the discs I added a little PVA glue to the foam tape when I was lining them up, you get a few seconds to move them around.
     Once the discs were added I layered up the card, I felt it was a little too bare so I added a small greeting to the bottom corner. Inside is still blank so it can be made to suit the occasion when it's needed.
     If you haven't visited The Paper Funday yet then please do, there's lots of inspiration over there from my creative team mates.
