This image brings back lots of memories for me as I had these on a doona cover and some curtains when I was really small (*ahem* like 35yrs ago).
I made a quick and simple card for this challenge as I was required to make a bunch of thank you cards for my son's teachers for his last day of school before his Year 12 Graduation. This card I made was for one of the music teachers.
I picked out Dark Blue ( from the retired Wander collection with the white stars - you could create this look with sapphire cardstock and our new white ), then I picked light Blue (I chose Carolina Cardstock) and the brown, so I chose the new . To get some tone-on-tone stamping I used an old stamp set with some music notes on it and random stamped all over the Mocha cardstock. I don't have the Mocha ink yet so I pulled out the reitred Nutmeg ink and they worked quite well together. I put an R in texta on the front of my ink pads that have retired so I know its an old colour but it still works well with current Mocha.
After doing stripes of each of the 3 main inspiration colours I decided to do a little gnome sign. I picked the gnome from the from the .
I coloured him with triblend markers in Fair Skin TriBlend™ Marker for his face and hands, for his boots and belt, True Blue TriBlend™ Marker for his hat and clothes and the lightest and mid tones of the Ice Grey TriBlend™ Marker for the bird.
