Gnomes are EVERYWHERE!
Happy mid-month Monday from me to you. Did you notice that the Christmas season brought lots of gnomes? Not even just in the bubble of crafting either, but I mean everywhere. Gnomes have enchanted me since I was a kid. I have even kept this little book set called Teeny Tiny Gnome Tomes. I admit I have several gnome stamp sets too. So, when Shopping Our Stash announced their new Challenge I was excited! Gnome Sweet Gnome is the theme, HOW FUN!
Yes, Stamping Bella! I have actually colored this guy up numerous times. Doing the flowers in pinks, blues, and purples. For this card I decided to go for a sunflower look. I also remembered to photograph my step by step coloring.
The top photo is colored with just Copics. The one below is with Prismacolor pencils added. I like the dimension and texture the pencil adds. I was really hesitant to try this technique. But I have to say, just try it! It is really easy and you will be amazed at the results.
