Coral Clothed Gnome
I had a little time to myself today so of course I opted to make a card instead of clean the house. That is the natural thing to do, right?!
I'm playing along with the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #284 and their current Color Challenge #47.
I started by inking and stamping the sitting gnome from You Gnome Me, then I colored him with Zigs. I added white foam paint for his beard. He was nested in front and in back of some grass cut from the Fresh Cut Grass Die-Namics. Lots of dimension with this little detail! I die cut a circle enclosed in a square from ivory cardstock a from series of Lil' Inker Designs dies, and then mounted this to an ivory card base that had been embossed with Lil' Inker Designs Cover-Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain. (I thought that cute little heart in the embossed area complimented the cute little gnome quite nicely.) I finished the card with a sentiment strip inked in the sam color as the gnome's shirt, and added a sentiment.
