Gnome for the holidays


I've not had much time to spend in my craft room, lots of changes in my life has got me running from pillar to post.  I did manage to squeeze in some time to put this card together using this sweet gnome from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set.   Whimsy Stamps have released some matching Outline Dies for this stamp set along with other matching sets as well, though I fussy cut this image out as when I coloured this image the dies hadn't yet been released 

I started off the card by inking a panel of white card with pumice stone distress oxide ink, then spattering with water and white paint.  Once dry I layered up some snow banks along with one of the trees from the Tree Assortment Die Set  

The colouring was kept simple with only red and grey used along with a touch of E's for the nose.

Reds: R37, R36, R24, R32
Grey: W3, 1, 0, 00
Skin: E11, 00

I have a few more Christmas cards to post that I made months ago and never got around to actually blogging them.  Should get those done this week.
