Hello everyone, Crece here with you today on the Scrapmatts blog.
I was looking through some of my old children's books the other day when I came across an old favorite by May Gibbs, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. I remember reading this when i was in grade 2 and its always been a book I've loved. So I wondered if I could come up with a Gumnut baby inspired project using some of the new Australiana items that Scrapmatts have designed... have a look and tell me what you think...
Gumnut Babies Frame
and here are the close ups...
These Gum leaves add such an Australian touch to the project, to colour them I used green ink and then added some brown ink to the edges to highlight each leaf.
I have used the following Scrapmatts products...

(Once Upon A Time)
I have also created a card using one of the Scrapmatts Stencils...
Happy Birthday Chess Card
I used the Chess Pieces Stencil to create the card above.
I started with the checkerboard and used black Gesso with an old credit card.
I then used Inka Gold in the Silver and Blue through the stencil for the chess pieces.
I cut around the chess pieces and layered them up on
CB5016 Nested Shapes 02 coloured in the same silver and blue inka gold.
I finished teh card off with a greeting from the new chipboard set
Head on over to the Scrapmatts Gallery to check out some of the fantastic work from the other Design Team members for some awesome inspiration and ideas.
