Petal Lu Anything Goes Challenge - I love you Gnome matter What!

I am here today to show you my design team work for the latest Petal Lu Challenge over on the Petal Lu Creations Facebook page.

I recently treated myself to the latest Stamping Bella stamps which I got from Dies to Die For.  This particular one is called Gnome Bouquet, I had to wait a little longer than usual to get this one (postal issues) and when he did eventually land on my door step I knew I had to work with him straight away.  I find the image so childish and fun and will of course lend itself to the colours of spring and summer.  Plus I have a garden full of gnomes myself, I do have a soft spot for them.

So here he is Gnome Bouquet!!


Copic used to colour:

Skin: E000, E00, E04, E21, E11, R20, R34
Hat: G28, YG67, YG45, YG23, YG11
