Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hallo everybody, Riet here.

(click here) to go to the Gnomes
For this card I used the sweater gnome.
Do you want to now how I made this gnome card?
 Well here we go.
  I used:
Musterd seed,
Peacock feathers,
Dusty concord, 
Picked rasberry.
Black fineliner (waterproof).
Derwent inktense pencils that match the distress colors.
A black waterproof ink, like stazon.
White gellpen.
Masking tape.

 We start with stamping the gnome with a waterproof black ink.
Stamp again on a piece of masking tape.
Mask the Gnome.
With a mandala stencil and the black fineliner, I have drawn a part of the mandala.
But if you like you can do the whole background.
With a yellow Inktense pencil I collered the background.
And with a orange inktense pencil I did some shadows.
Take a waterbrush and wet the yellow and orange.
Its amazing what a color burst you get with a small amount of water.
Now color the gnome and use the water again.
For the scond background you just make some ink puddles on your craftsheet.
Spray some water and run your paper trough it.
With the white gelpen make some dots on his hat.
Make some accent on the gnome with the white gelpen.
Matt your card and you are finished.

And thats what we all like, winning some stamps.
