Nana Gardening Gnome

This image is called Nana Gardening Gnome, Created by Heather Valentine. You can only get her at:

I used a background from Craft Artist 2 and placed my images in the scene. I printed the scene three times and colored the image using Copic Markers. Then I cut two out in different places and stacked them all together with soft pads to form a 3D picture. I adhered the picture to card stock and embellished the card with a wooden sentiment that I painted white and place it a piece of black card stock. My final step was to adhere the embellishment to the card with soft pads.

The following is my color recipe card:
I hope you were inspired with this little card. Hope to see you again soon.

Lil Hot Mama Scootabug

Today is my day to post some inspiration using Lil Hot Mama Scootabug and the Gnome house from the Gnome Digi Bits by artist Heather Valentin.  You can find the perfect Gnome for your next project under the Gnomes of Willow Pines at Lacy Sunshine. 

Lil Hot Mama Scootabug

I must admit to taking a creative twist with theses two images.  I merged the two together to create the scene.  Coloured everything with copics, added the googly eyes and  a bow to the caterpillar.  In my stash of "interesting stuff to use on day" were some lightly shaded plastic dots that fit perfectly in Mama's glasses. White highlights were added with a gel pen.
