Happy Thursday! Today I have this adorable little gnome with a huge beard and some pretty flowers. I colored this up with my Copics and made a card, then went back and colored it up with my Polychromos Pencils also! It is really fun to see them side by side.
Can I tell you how in love I am with these flowers? Yes! there are Nuvo drops on the centers. Good catch.
I told you my little friend has a large beard. There is some pencil over the Copics giving it that awesome texture. I have to say I think this is my best beard so far.

thank you so much Nancy! Did you like the side by side of the Copic vs. the Pencil?
I love Gnomes and this one is no exception. You did a wonderful job with both coloring mediums. I had to go and buy this (and I added many more to my cart) Thank you for the inspiration.
