Gnome Party

I've decided I LOVE making little scenes for my characters, so this sweet Gnome Party Row stamp set by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps was just perfect to get my fiddle on.

I started off with a panel of Bristol Smooth and inked on the sky, then made a stencil using the Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set and inked up layers of grass.  I also cut a slimline length strip of grass from the Build a Fairy Garden Die Set for extra dimension.  I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide for the sky and Cracked Pistachio with a touch of Mowed Lawn for the grass.  Please see the end of the post for the list of copic colours used as it's rather a long one!

I then got to the fun part - die cutting and colouring those cute little flowers and toadstools to build the scene.  Aren't they just fab!?  They're all from the Slimline Meadow Die Set.  So not only a great interactive die, but the fiddle bits are perfect for all sorts of cards too.  

I stamped a sentiment from the Gnome Party Row stamp set then die cut it along with the red frame from the Simple Sentiments Strips Die Set.  This useful set is permanently out on my desk, I can't see me putting it away for a long, long time!

I coloured the gnomies with the following copic markers

Green: G16, G03, YG41
Teal: BG18, 15, 32
Blue: B87, 95, 93, 91
Violet: V15, V12, V01
Pink: RV34, RV11, RV10
Yellow: V91, Y15, Y13, Y11
Skin: E04, E11, E00 and E13, E11, E21
Beards: T3, T1, T0 and W3, 1, 0
Hair: E55, 53, 50 and E43, 41, 40
