Reading Gnome

Hi There..

Well, another week, another Bellarific Friday!!  In my world the weeks seem to be passing quickly, but I know that for some, this lock down can't end soon enough.  I think we'll all have to be very wary to start with though, which is going to be very difficult for those of us with grandchildren - I've even got a new grandchild who I haven't been able to give a 'grandma cuddle' yet!

I've used the fabulous Reading Gnome on my card today - it was from last release - and I've been waiting patiently to colour him!  Don't forget, there's a wonderful new release to come in the near future... you'll LOVE it!

I coloured the gnome and toadstool - before fussy cutting.  Then I used a circular stencil to blend Distress Oxides through, giving a background for the image.  I did a bit of splattering on it too, and placed the sentiment just where I wanted it.  Lastly I adhered the image with foam pads to give lots of depth, giving it a shadow using warm grey copics.
