Hello! It is time for me to showcase another amazing stamp from I Brake for Stamps! MOST of their stamps can be purchased either a la carte or by the sheet. There are a few exceptions to this rule, and this gnome is an example of that. The gnome you see below can only be purchased by the sheet, BUT you get 10 different gnomes and 3 separate toadstools on that sheet! If you are a gnome lover like I am, this is a HUGE value with all of the different types of gnomes!



It was actually a gnome card made by one of their DT members that alerted me to this company. Both Kathi and I have similar tastes and we often end up creating with similar/the same stamps.

I colored my little gnome using Zig Markers on watercolor paper, fussy cut him out and colored the edges black with my Copic Multiliner. I hadn’t been too sure of what I’d do with him until I found this background stamp, which was also colored in the same fashion. My only problem was that the background was so busy my gnome would easily have gotten lost.

Enter vellum! Vellum allows you to see the background but in an obscured way, allowing for something in front to pop to your attention. Adhering vellum can be tricky, I could adhere it behind the gnome no problem, I used some Ranger Multi-Matte Medium between the background and the vellum, and again between the vellum and the gnome. I also used TINY bits of Multi-Matte Medium behind the strategically placed sentiment, which I found on another random stamp set in my stash.

Next week I’ll bring you a FABULOUS mermaid card, but in the meantime, you should check out their website! I Brake for Stamps has over 3,000 images to choose from, every time I go shopping there I find stamps I hadn’t seen before.
