Fall is in the Air

Hello, I hope you are having a good week so far. I have had this cute little Fall Gnome set from Spellbinders for about a month now and it was past time that I inked him up. The set is absolutely darling and has so many cute stamps included. I recently realized that Fall themed stamps are probably what I have the least of, so I am very pleased to add this set to my collection!

The weather has been so much cooler here post-Hurricane Ian and we are enjoying our morning and evening walks so much. In fact, near the end of this week, we are supposed to have highs in the 70’s, so Fall is showing itself a bit even here in Florida.

After I stamped, colored, and die cut these darling images, I decided to get out my MFT Watercolored Wash Rectangle to make a background for Mr. Gnome. In order to make the gap in the sky and the grass I shorten the stencil using the positive piece that comes in the set. Then I remove the stencil, make a gap, and finish inking the bottom using Oxide inks once again. For my mediums I have mostly used Copics with a bit of Prisma Colored Pencils for detail, especially for his beard.

Here is a pic to help you understand what I did with the stencil.

I am playing along with Addicted to Stamps and More for their Die Cut and Stencil Challenge.

I hope you have a wonderful day and get a chance to do something that brings you Joy! Your visits certainly bring me JOY as well!

Take care, Nanc’
