I’m on the blog today sharing a selection of cards made using the Garden Gnome stamps which were recently released on Create & Craft TV. All have been coloured with the new Nuvo Water Colour pencil sets: Elementary Midtones, Pastel Highlights and Dark Shadows.
I created a mask for the Gnome house stamp & created a monochrome background. I doodled a heart around the central image, coloured with Fresh Strawberry & Rose Trellis from Elementary Midtones set. On a separate piece of water colour card, I restamped the house & several of the floral images – again all coloured with Elementary Midtones water pencil set. Using 3D foam, I layered the images up to fit within the heart.
I began by stamping the sentiment, spade & flower pot to form a triangle. Between each of images, I doodled a border to create a rectangular frame. The main gnome images were stamped, coloured & then cut out playing them within my doodles rectangle. To colour these images, I used the Dark Shadows water colour sets.
For this card I have combined a mixture of colours from each of the three new water colour pencils. All the images were stamped on to separate water colour card, coloured & cut out. I have then layered the images to create a garden scene.
Again for this card, I have combined colours from all three of the new Nuvo water colour sets. I created my background first, adding the sentiment & began colouring to “set my scene”. On separate card, I stamped the adorable gnome image, cutting him out, adding him with 3D foam to my card front. As a finishing touch, I added a few extra floral images.
