Gnome Tangle

Hi there 🙂 I’m really cruising with the Christmas cards, and at least have all the ones that I need to mail done!! I just HAD to use one of Lisa’s gnomes, from the Twistoon store. I can’t see this one in there, so it must have been either a freebie, or she retired it. There’s lots of other ones to choose from though!! I colored this little guy up with my Copics, then added some “sparkles” to his hat with white Posca pen.

I cut the image out with a round die, then used a scrap of red dotted paper to cut a larger circle to mat it. I found a little strip of green polka dotted paper, and layered everything together, adding a coordinating red dotted mat. I have a hard time throwing out even the smallest pieces of sparkle paper, and these tiny pieces sure came in handy, as I cut the ornament overlays with a few of them, as well as the sparkly sentiment.

I’d like to enter this in the following:

Papercraft Challenges – #88 Polka Dots

Colour Crazy Craft Challenge – Week 49 ATG

Time Out Challenges – #228 Winter or Holiday Season

Snippets Playground – #443 ATG with Snippets

  1. Now that is one VERY cute gnome. Beautifully coloured.

    Thanks for submitting homework to the Snippets Playground! Once you’ve finished playing on the swings, please come up to the Treehouse Bar to enjoy a nice hot chocolate with extra marshmallows (and maybe a little nip of Baileys?) xxx
