Globleland Gnome Christmas Card–Watercolors & Alcohol Markers

I was sent this stamp set by link:

I used two pieces of 6 x 6 papers from Craft Perfect Santa’s Workshop link:×6-paper-packs-santas-workshop-9384e and glued them together with about 1″ overlapping to make the papers large enough to fit on a 5 x 7″ card base.

I took a white base that was 10″ x 7″ tall and scored it on the 10″ side at 5″ to make a 5 x 7″ card base. Then I cut the Santa’s Workshop Christmas tree pattern down to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and adhered it to the card base. The gnome in the truck was shorter than what I would normally put on a 5 x 7″ card, so I centered it on the Christmas tree paper when I was finished coloring it.

I used Viviva Colorsheets link: and used their Viridian color and swatched out a bunch on my chicken egg dish then used a larger brush to color in the background of my gnome card. Then I dried the background well with a heat tool and used alcohol markers to color the rest of the image.

I thought it would be relaxing for you to watch me color….hopefully you’ll think so too. After I was finished coloring, I used foam for behind the gnome to give it some dimension and adhered it to the Christmas tree paper. Then I took some old Graphic 45 scraps I had and punched out some Christmas tree shapes, and bent them in the middle and glued them around the truck on the card base. I think it turned out cute…and hope you did too.
