Skating Gnome

 I used one of the cute Skating Gnomes from Mo's Digital Pencil to make something a little different this week. I made an interactive slider card so that the gnome can really skate across the ice.

I have had the Surf and Turf die by MFT for years. I really wanted it because I love slider cards but I've never actually used it!  So I got this skating gnome specially to try it out and I had fun with it and love the result :)

For the sentiment I used words from a stamp that I cut out and the "ice" is made with some old letter stickers I had lying around.  

I made the sky using Distress Oxides and coloured the gnome with Copics

Copics used :

B 21, 23, 24, 26, 28

E 000, 13, 21, 35, 55

W 1, 3

R 20, 22

Fairy Tuttle

This week I got to use one of the gorgeous new stamps from Mo's Digital Pencil.  

This is Fairy Tuttle, she is absolutely adorable isn't she?!  

I coloured her with copics, and had a lot of fun choosing all my favourite colours for her clothes. I also added a little Wink of Stella to her wings and cut her out.

Then I created the background.  I used my gel press and brayered on some Distress Oxide inks. Then I added water to some of the ink and splashed it on top, then took a print.

After that had dried I used a circle mask to create a moon, sponging Distress Oxide around the edge and then highlighting the edge a little with white gel pen.  

I used Dandelions, Field Grass and Mini Stars by Lavinia Stamps with an old PSX words stamp to create a scene. 

Then I added some ground at the bottom with Distress Oxides and also blended them around the whole panel. I added a little glitter to one of the dandelions too although you can't see that in the photo.

Copics used :

BG 0000, 000,07, 09, 10, 11, 13,15, 49, 72

RV 00, 52, 63

V 01 12, 15, 17

R 20, 81

W 1, 3, 5

E 000, 00, 21, 42, 43, 47
