Hello crafty friends! Chris here,  first of all I hope you  had a wonderful and healthy start for 2021 and wishing  you all the best. Today I‘m sharing a  card I made with these little cute gnomes. After using a lot of blues for my winter cards I decided to make one with pinks!

For this card I used:

I started stamping and coloring the images with alcohol markers. For the clothes and hats I decided to do ‘paper piecing’, so I just stamp these little guys  again on design paper and cut the parts out that I needed and add it on to the  gnomes.  With alcohol markers and coloring pencils I made some shadows and details. Then I die cut all the mushrooms and the grass from the Fairy Glade scene die and also colored them with alcohol  markers.

For the background I ink blended a sky with Distress Oxide Ink (Peacock Feathers)  and for the grass I also used a green Distress Oxide  Ink (Rustic Wilderness).

I wanted this little scene to be more in focus so I cut out from two square pieces of white paper two circles in different sizes. To finish, I adhered the background onto the card base – arranged all images and glued them down. That‘s it and my card is finished.

I hope you liked my project today and as always, thanks for reading.

Happy crafty time
