Wonderful Wednesday: Flying Gnome in Coloured Pencil Video

Flying Gnome Coloured Pencil Card

While Flying Gnome is still on offer as the January Stamp of the Month, I thought I would revisit him using coloured pencils.

It’s just such a fun image. I love the movement and the quirkiness. I also love colouring gnome beards – you can see me colouring this one in the video below, but I also have a video demonstrating a few different approaches to colouring beards or fur using coloured pencil HERE. If Copic markers are your thing, I have a similar video using those HERE.

It’s Tuesday, so here I am shining a big spotlight on some older but still absolutely fantastic stamps. They might be sitting somewhere in your collection, waiting to be dusted off again, or they might be totally new to you. Either way, let’s take a look at what the Babes have done with them in the past, and get inspired!

it’s SUNDAY with TAMIBELLA!

www.stampingbella.com: rubber stamp used: CLOSEUP IN LOVE card buy Tamara potocnik
Hi!
Tamara here with you with a Valentine’s Day card! YES! It’s that time of the year already. I usually make a few Valentine’s Day cards a year but I often add sentiments that can be used for other occasions too. Image used today is called Closeups “IN LOVE” and it comes with an awesome sentiment which I added inside the card (but forgot to take a picture, duh ..).Image was stamped using Distress Ink pads on 300g HP wtarecolour paper and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads and fussy cut.

Distress Ink colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
sweater: mowed lawn, forest moss
daisies: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, hickory smoke
shirt: broken china, black soot
skirt, heart: barn door, fired brick

I made a slimline card because I wanted to add some big letters instead of sentiment on the front and I needed more space on the card. Papers used are from various companies.

I hope you like my card. Enjoy your Sunday!
Hugs, t.
