Garden Gnome

Another cute Gnome taking over the garden.  I think this guy is on top of it!  This is part of the new release, and I combined him with cheery colors, and fabulous products.  A simple card that says it all.

Card Details:

Coloring hair, or beards doesn’t have to be done in a complicated manor.  Like you can see here, I chose to just color the beard in long wisps.  Mimic the detail in the image with a flick of the darkest color you want to use, and then extend each flick out with the lighter colors.  Blend and extend.

Just a note on the frame I created for this card.  In order to make this,  I used the inner piece of the Slimline Meadows, and one of the Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies.  These pieces were taped together before running it through the machine to hold them together.  This created the frame border.

There are actually two gnome sets in this last release.  This one is specific to gardening.  I shared the links to the products below.
