Naughty Gnomes.. pretending its Xmas time

I have to say I loved colouring up this guy, I know he is a gnome but he was begging to be coloured as a sleepy Santa.   This image is one of five in the digistamp by Oddball Art (Lizzy Love) 

I used my Cameo and created a card base that fits the image exactly and I think Ill add a ribbon somewhere for a tag type card.

I coloured up this image with Copics which was a nice change as I had been using watercolour lately and had forgotten how nicely copics layer up and create interest.

Im also changing up how I take photo's these days.  I quite like laying the cards flat and popping some items around the card.   I just have to put some tape inside the card to keep it flat during the photo processes.

Now its your turn to play, have you visited the challenge blog and uploaded a card yet!!

Creative Fingers with Christine Karron Images

Well talk about spoiled for choice, the team was given images from Christine Karron for this months Creative Fingers - Anything Goes challenge.  I took my real brush markers to work and coloured,  I thought it would help me relax.. it didnt.   I did like having a break at work and colours in hand.

Are you an Oddball?

I had such a good time playing with textures on this card.   I got some stencils and stencil brushes out and moved the stencil slightly between colours to get a textured brick look, I then remembered I had some grit paste that I hadnt' tried, this stuff ended up looking like grout or concrete.  Im going to try adding colour to it next time.  

I coloured the image with copics and once I was all done, I protected the image and flicked on some paint with graphite paint pens.

We look forward to seeing you on the challenge blog, or on the facebook groups or forums!
