Today I'm sharing a cheeky little chap from Creative Stamping magazine issue 94. Perfect for this time of year when the garden is springing to life with flowers and minibeasts.
I used a mixture of Distress Ink for the more translucent stamping, Distress Oxides for bolder images, Ranger Archival ink for the black and Inktense pencils for colouring.
I added some speckles with paint pen and Promarkers to give a bit of texture and create some 'movement' in the background.
Finally a little shading of shadows with the pencils to give a bit of depth. Gnomes are not really my thing but I think this little fellow is quite charming.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. It's always appreciated xx
I love this, the little guy is so sweet. I did get the magazine but not used the stamps yet but must get them out soon. Happy crafting, Angela xXxReplyDelete
This is so lovely and charming, as you said :-) It is so Springi-ish and magical with all that glitter.ReplyDelete
I'm guessing this wasn't a quick make! But it's all worth it, the colours sing, there is lots of interest with all the details and the gnome and sentiment are fun!ReplyDelete
