Spring Gnomes

|

It's almost Easter which can only mean one thing... The chocolate season is upon us! I still can't get my head around Cadbury Creme Eggs and those massive chocolate eggs that you buy (and presumably eat) here. Imagine the overdose of chocolate many office workers will suffer at this time of the year.

I was looking for something spring-themed in my stash but couldn't find anything but the cute gnomes from My Favourite Things. I collected a lot of bonus papers from magazines which I still need to use. While they're perfect for iris folding, I didn't want to share another iris folding design with you and made these cards instead:




















I'm still using a rather basic set of Copics colours which is why the gnomes' shirts have been paper pieced. I couldn't get myself to colour them pink! The greens don't really go together but Faye showed me how to blend non-blendable colours and it worked out on both cards.

Time for some serious crafting tonight as I set myself the challenge to make at least one card a day for this week.

  1. I remember my office days with great affection.... think that's where I acquired the migraines and had to stop eating chocolate... but I remember...
