Hello from Toni: Honey Bee Gnome

Hello, my gnomies! Today's card features the Honey Bee Gnome Place Like Home set. I think gnomes are so cute (and yet creep en masse) so snatched this up out of the current DB sale section.

I first sponged the card base with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers and the MFT Mini Cloud Edges stencil. I didn't mask the edges of the card; instead I used a sand eraser for any ink that strayed over the edges.

Next I used the MFT Brick Wall Cover Up Die with a leftover panel I had colored with Zigs way back when. I cut that in half and glued the bricks back in randomly for a really cool look.

I colored up the HB gnome with Copics and promptly chopped off his legs and replaced them with Lawn Fawn twine. Just call me the Wicked Witch of the Pacific Northwest.

I love how his legs hang over the brick wall and can swing around.  I used a sentiment from Sunny Studio Silly Sloths for a cute pun.  So fun! 

I'll see you again soon.  If you'd like to check out my other creations in the meantime, you can visit my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, my Instagram, or my Pinterest Board.
