The Spot Challenge #134 - Sketch Challenge with Stampin' Up! Gnome for the Holidays

 Hey there!  Happy Tuesday or as I like to call it.. I survived Monday!  We have a brand new sketch over at The Spot for you this week.  Check it out!

I took a few liberties with this one but it was fun to see what everyone on the Design Team came up with!  You'll definitely want to check out because there are some amazing designs this week!

I used the adorable Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set because I just haven't used the Gnomes enough this year!  I used a little different color combination this time with lots of Rich Razzleberry since I used two strips of the Perfectly Plaid in Rich Razzleberry and White. 

I stamped the Gnome for the Holidays Tree first with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and used my Stampin' Blends to color it in.  At first I thought I would stamp and fussy cut out both the tree and the Gnome but after I colored it, I decided to stamp the Gnome next to it and make a little scene with it.  Once I colored in my Gnome, I used the Stitched Labels Dies to cut it out and then completed the scene by filling in the ground and the sky.  Because the label was a little higher than I first expected, I also, added a little to my tree by coloring it up higher than the stamp and finishing it off with a Black Marker fine tip marker to make it look like the stamp was higher than it was.  I hope that makes sense and that I was a little successful in that.  I also used the fine tip marker to draw a line to ground everything.  I was really happy with how it turned out.    

Thanks so much for stopping by!   Blessings, Tina
