Gnome for Christmas

 Today I felt like assembling a gnome die for one of my friends little one.  This ws a practice run to see if I could make similar ones for my 8 grandchildren, obviously not for my 17 yr old granddaughter. 

The die is by Marianne Designs and I used tartan paper for his jacket and haat, black for gloves and boots and white obviously for his beard.  I used Anita's 3d gloss for his nose, gloves and boots. I used an embossing tool behind his body to round him off a little and used double sided foam tape for the hat and body,

The house stamp I believe to be by Apple Blossom . I lightly coloured it using my polychromos and prisma pencils and blended.  I did not want it to be a solid colour as I wanted my little mate to be the prominent feature. 

The words of the sentiment was in the stamp set but wanted to print it out

Thank you for dropping by
