Gnome Season

Well, not really ... Just that I've made a few gnome cards today.
Actually I think it's arthritis season, my wrists and feet are really hurting. I guess it's the cold weather...Funny things happen this time of year... Take this morning for example... At 8am the phone rang... I thought it was my husband's friend (didn't have my glasses on you see) and I was cursing him as we were still in bed... Well we are retired. Anyway I didn't get it but now I had to get up, feed the cats and birds and then shower. At around 9am the same number rang again... I didn't get to it in time so passed the phone to my husband to call his friend. Turns out is was my son's mobile number that called but he asleep and his phone was switched off! WTH???

Anyway... Here's one of my gnome cards for you

 This little guy was coloured with Copics and though you can't see it, he has a sparkly beard too - those little lines are a sparkly gelly pen

He looks like he hiding under a fir tree but actually those fir branches are upside down tree stamps did you notice? I thought they worked well.

 I did a little ink blending to give the illusion of a slope and then I wet a paint brush and painted around the base of my gnome, added some liquid pearls and some splattering of diluted white acrylic paint to finish.

I'll share the others later in the week... 

Wishing you a lovely day
