Sleepy Gnome


It's Anja here. Hope you're doing well and that vacation is coming for you soon. I'll have to wait till August for two weeks off.

I have a simple card for you today. Using a sleepy gnome die.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Sleepy Gnome w/Mushrooms),
- Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone, Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Brushed Corduroy, Black Soot, Tattered Rose) and Oxides (Broken China),
- white card base (10,515 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- water spritzer,
- silver acrylic paint,
- heat gun,
- brush,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the gnome.

Next I made the background. I colored directly on the card base, using Distress Oxide.

After that I spritzed some water drops over it and dried it with the heat gun.

Newt I spritzed some silver paint over it and again dried it with the heat gun.

And in the end I just adhered the gnome and my card was done.

Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.
