Home is where the Gnome is

For this week's Digital  stamps highlight, I've used the Whimsy Stamps Spring Gnomes.

I thought this one looks like he might have a new  (bird) home. And so I decided to make it a moving house card. And as I strongly feel every home/garden needs a Gnome I came up with the sentiment.

I have my eyes on one or two from Action, not sure I like them enough, it's a couple and they're so cute, but the colors...don't match my flowers, I shall get one eventually, for now I have a concrete pig statue in my garden. Had is for 25-30 years. not sure, It moved with me twice. I also have my Kitsch Flamingo Of course, so might be kind of full or Kitsch things hehe.

Anyway back to the card: I masked off an area on the cardbase and inkblended Tumbled Glass and Cracked PIstachio on  it. Then Splattered with Metallic watercolor paint for shine and interest in matching colors of blue and green.

I made the sentiment in Word with a bold font (I also use for my personal watermarks, Thought it looked a little like the Digi sentiments from Everyday Banner Sentiments).

Printed the Spring Gnome on Copic Safe paper and colored it with my Copic marks and a nod to Ukraine with Blue and yellow. Mounted him with foamtape and adhered him to the cardbase.
