* BabyCakes Digi Design GDT: Garden Gnome



Today, I am delighted to share my second GDT project for Sandra Caldwell, the artist at BabyCakes Digis and Designs on Etsy.

Today a new set of digi stamps are released and I chose to work with digi stamp 

#3314 - Gnome How To Plant

I coloured the image with Copic markers and added some white Posca pen highlights. I fussy cut him out leaving a thin white border so that he would pop out from the background.

The background is blended Distress Oxides in Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint and Weathered Wood. Water droplets were scattered over to bleach out some of the colour, then background, tone on tone stamping was added. I decided to stamp and heat emboss the sentiment which is from an AALL & Create stamp set (#181 Bouquet Add Ons). I made a spotlight circle to add to the background for the gnome to sit upon. White paint splatters and a black mat finish off my card.

That's all for now.
Thank you to Sandra for asking me to guest design.
I hope you'll pop over to BabyCakes Digi and Design to see the cute and whimsical images on offer.
