Love these new Slimline Cornered Rectangle Dies from Whimsy Stamps and had to use them as soon as they arrived. I've paired them with the delightful new Gnomes Lift You Up stamp set, because .... Gnomies!
I did the background panel by inking up distress inks in Kitsch Flamingo, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade. Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers. I usually go for a much softer look with distress oxides but love the pop of colour that the distress inks give.
I coloured the image with copic markers then masked off the image and inked in the background, this time using distress oxides in Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron and a hint of Mowed Lawn. I added details to the gnomies hats with a white gel pen.
Skin - E70, E11, E00

I then die cut a frame from two of the smaller dies in the set to show off the gnomes
There are two images in this set and I'll be sharing a card later in the week with the other sweet gnomie flying his kite.
