A Gnomie Glow!...

Hello everyone!

Happy Fri-yay!

I'm here today with another of May's fabulous new release images from

To make this card I used the new 
to cut a piece of card, suitable for alcohol markers.

I stamped this fabulous image with black ink and started colouring - background first!

Once I had achieved an effect I was happy with I used a sponge to dab Copic Colourless Blender all over the background to add some texture.

Then, I left the background alone and went on to colour this amazing gnome and his snail pal!

I stamped the sentiment from the
set and die cut it with 
fixing it to the card design as shown.

I layered the coloured design onto a piece of black glitter card and finished it by adding some dabs of 
Star Dust Stickles
and some
Glossy Accents
to the snail's eyes.
