A Bit More Time to Craft Challenge 105 and MyBesties Gnomes

For the A Bit More Time To Craft Challenge 105, I used the Gnomes from MyBesties. I just love this time of year. I love the decorations, Christmas lights, and Christmas trees. I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season. 

For this image I created a 6x6 card. I selected three digital papers created by Lozzie. They are Day Star #4, Xmas Paper #14, and #215. These papers are the perfect complement to the gnomes. I love the stars, snowflakes, and patterns in these beautiful pattern papers. 

I used the following copic markers:
 C0, W0, W2, W3, W6E0000, E000, E00, E01, E11, E23, E31, E35, E41, E 55, E74, E77, R14, R20, R30, R24, R27, G02, G05, G17, B12, B91, B93, E97, and N4. 

I also used green and red glitter. Who doesn't like a bit of sparkle? The digital paper had Merry Christmas as part of the design, which was my inspiration for the card. 

I do have a video demonstrating coloring one of the gnomes below:

This is such an adorable image 'GNOME -VILLE IMG20191116-1047' from MyBesties

This adorable image is GNOME -VILLE IMG20191116-1047, created by Sherri Baldy on the MyBestiesShop. I created this card on Friday, Black Friday no less. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of viewers during my live on my Facebook page Creative Paper Crafting with Jacquie.  I do lives on Wednesday and Friday evenings at 7:00 PM EST.

I created a 6 x 6 card. I used distress oxide ink mixed with liquid glitter to create the background.

I used the following copic markers on the gnome:

Face - YR000, E0000, E00, and E11
Cheeks and Nose - R20 and R30
Hat and Gloves - R27, R24, R14, and B97
Beard - W0, E000, and E41
Hair - C3, C2,and C0
Clothes - G17, G05, and G2

I added a touch of green glitter and used a white and glittery gelly pen too.

I just think this gnome is absolutely adorable and no one draws gnomes better than Sherri Baldy.
