Merry Christmas Gnome

I had a play with the new 2 way Christmas Wreath stamps from Claritystamp and combined them with one of the Gnomes.
Die cut a topper from clarity stencil card using the 5.5” nested circle die and a mat from black card using the coordinating nested circle picot die.
Die cut the edge of the stencil card topper using the second largest Nested Circle Heart Doodle Aperture Frame-It die.
Add one of the Güd Gnome stamps in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink and mask it up.
Blend Evergreen Bough and Pine Needles Distress ink over the topper with foam tools.
Add the inner section of the 2-way Christmas Wreath into the background using Pine Needles Distress Oxide.
Add the solid holly stamp from the same set in the same ink, then remove the mask.
Colour the gnome with Faber-Castell Polychromos (#223, #126, #199, #230, #231, #232).
Add Merry Christmas from the wreath stamp set in Versamark ink to the topper and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Mat up the topper and add it to the front of a 6” x 6” white card blank.
To finish, add the bow from the wreath set into each corner in Festive Berries Distress Oxide.
