Viking Gnome


Who does not LOVE a gnome?!


Hi All! Today I have this cute Viking Gnome from KLM Designs. This is the last image I received for being part of PPCF’s Design Team. Thanks KLM Designs! This card was so fun to design. I knew I wanted to use the Black & White Plaid paper I had, and the Altenew Linear Crossroads die. I think it turned out pretty rad! Leave me a comment and tell me what YOU think! Now, on with the show and tell…


Did you ever wonder why we have FOUR different families of grey Copics? Well this card is why! I can make his helmet and axe a silvery grey and his beard a warm grey. Both grey, but different. Think of how it would change if all the grey were one family….BORING!


Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft and the b/w plaid worked really well here. Making the leather and the green on the shield pop a bit more.


Three black rhinestones round out the card.

Copic List:

  • Hair: W5, W4, W3, W2, W1
  • Skin: E11, E21, E51
  • Shield: C5, C4, C3, C2, YG67, YG63, YG03
  • Axe: E29, E25, E23, C3, C2, C1, C0
  • Leather: E09, E08, E13
  • Metal on Helmet: C6, C5, C4, C3, C2
  • Horns: E43, E42, E41

Jill, what an amazing sample of warm vs cool grays. I love the image and that simple but striking line background. That die cut grounds him perfectly.
