Gnome one like you


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


  1. 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 xXx

  2. This is so lovely and charming, as you said :-) It is so Springi-ish and magical with all that glitter.

  3. 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!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. xx
