Gnoel from the Gnome Family | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello friends!  As promised on my Instagram post, I have the details for my Gnome card using this adorable Honey Bee Stamps Gnome Place Like Home set.

For coloring the images, I stamped them with Ink on 3's Fadeout Detail Ink.  I used my MISTI and stamped them about three times so I could see the light colored ink better.  I colored them with my Copic markers (I've listed the colors at the end of my post.)  I used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut them out.

Next I used the Winter Wonder Background Stencil Set (set of 6) to create my background.  The mountain and hill stencils can be snipped apart, then you have a stencil and a mask.  I used Pixie Spray, which is a repositionable adhesive and makes stenciling SO easy!  Just spray it on the back, wait about a minute, and you're good to go.

I started at the top, placed one stencil down, used a couple Detail Blender Brushes, then used the mask portion, and the next stencil portion.  I used Distress Oxides in these colors:  Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, and Weathered Wood.  I very lightly added the Weathered Wood for a shadow effect on the snowy hills.

Next I used one of the snow stencils from the same set to add snow.  I used Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Paste through the stencil.  I let it dry, and to my dismay, I found that the moisture of the embossing paste picked up the Distress Oxide color below it!  Thankfully, it didn't take too long to use a white gel pen to go over the snowflakes to make them white again.

I also used the white gel pen to add snow to the trees and the girl gnome's dress.  I added a clear sparkle pen to the hills at the bottom and the vellum shadow layer behind the sentiment.  Oh, I used my blue Copics on a scratch piece of card stock in an ombre pattern then die cut the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do so appreciate that!  Carol :)
