We all love a gnome...


I happened to notice that the current challenge at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity is Gnomes

And I won this gnome stamp from LCD a while ago - I have more on my wishlist!!

 23 gnome stamps and 4 gnome homes are available in real red rubber from the Lost Coast Designs store. 

My gnome ATC is a red rectangle matted with a background made using wax crayon resist and Brushos.

I have been doing quite a few of these backgrounds recently - really handy for ATCs!

I placed paper over an embossing folder and did a rubbing with a white wax crayon, sprinkled on the Brushos and spritzed with water. I trimmed to size once it was dry.

I stamped my gnome, coloured it with markers and cut it out, adding it to the background. I printed the sentiment on the computer, drew round the words with a Micron pen and cut them out and added them too.

Happy Crafting!
