Hi! Tamara here with you today. I had a plan to use one of the Oddballs today but then when I was going through my stamp drawer I found this awesome stamp and it was brand new, never used so I decided to use this one today and I’m glad I did. These three gnomes are having soooo much fun. This image is called Three gnomes and a pickup and I used my Distress ink pads to colour it up. First I stamped it with Archival Ink – Jet Black on Farbriano 300 g HP watercolour paper. I’m using extra white watercolouring paper, there are two options (traditional white and extra white) and I like this one more.
Distress ink pads used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
tree: peeled paint, forest moss
ribbon: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
pickup: peacock feathers, vintage photo, black soot
gnomes (clothes): villainous potion, faded jeans, barn door
To make a card I used 5″ x 5.5″ card base and decorated it with some Christmas design paper from my stash. I diecut two large snowflakes and some mittens.
Sentiment “Sending you holiday cheer” comes with the image.
Have a lovely Sunday!
