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.
