Gus & Gertie – Taylored Expressions

Photo Aug 19, 6 49 12 AM

The adventures of Gus & Gertie continue! Now they are riding through a flower bed on Gus’ scooter!

Quick Tips:

  • I used the Doodle Flowers background to fill in the scene but masked off the top flowers.
  • You might want to color in the flowers to add a little more pop, but I liked leaving Gus and Gertie as the stars of this show! (Plus it’s quicker)
  • Some soft blue and green blending give the impression of sky and grass but still keep things light and bright!

Thanks for stopping by!

MFT New Best Friend – October Use My Stuff Challenge

Photo Oct 12, 9 29 16 AM

I consider this card a bit of a self-portrait – me holding our lab Finn (who is too big to be holdable now but, you know, artistic license) and our cat Ginger (making her “what the heck is that?” face).

I don’t usually go for the “all over” scene card front (love them when other people do it but mine always look too busy).  This one I am good with!

The little sprigs of grass were just made by flicking a Copic marker – for sure, the most stressful part of making the card.
