Brutus Monroe Blog Hop | Using the Gnomes stamp set

Hey everyone!

How about a little gnome inspiration for today!? The Brutus Monroe inspiration team is creating using some really cute gnomes. You can find the blog hop list to continue on the hop below and also the Copic Marker's I used.

Here is some more inspiration on using Aqua Pigments with pastes

I stamped the gnomes from the Gnome Place Like Home using Raven Detail ink. I heat set the ink with a heat gun really quick so that I could color in the gnomes with Copic Markers. I decided to use the colors of the candy hearts. It seemed appropriate. Though my backwards rainbow was totally intentional I actually was going to mix it up the colors... haha!
Once I colored up the gnomes I quickly did a ground layer with a bright green marker. 

I love mixing stuff! I think it is so fun. I used the Set the Scene stencils to create my little scene for the gnomes. First using the Blue and Yellow Aqua Pigments mixed in with some Media Paste to create a light green color. I cleaned off my tools then mixed more Media Paste with a few drops of Blue Aqua Pigment and Pearl. The Pearl doesn't show a whole lot but it was interesting to try. You do not need a whole lot of the Aqua Pigments, a little goes a long way. It's like mixing food coloring and frosting. I used the blue mixture for the clouds then set that aside to dry. This does take a while, at least several hours. 

I used a banner die from my stash to cut a piece of Lunch Box card stock and heat embossed the sentiment on to that. Once my gnome panel was dry I trimmed it down a bit to layer on top of a Lunch Box A2 card base and attached the sentiment.
