It certainly has been a log time since I've blogged. I have been quite poorly and it's taken quite some time to recoup and get my mojo back! To ease myself in gently I made this card for someone who was has a special birthday and a strong liking for garden gnomes.
I used the Santa stamp from Leanne Creatif, removed his bobble and sack and voila we had a garden gnome!
With some creative colouring, carefully masking the lines in the hat and converting the laced boots into wellingtons I painted out the lines & details with some white acrylic paint before adding some colour with neocolour II water soluable crayons. With addition of some rosy cheeks, the transformation was complete.
To the special age of 80, I added a little foliage to make my gnome feel right at home.
