Hello Monday my friends! Welcome to this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - NOT A CARD. I made a fun decor piece, and I don't have a step by step for this project, but photos to show the elements.
I've captured a Woodland Gnome in the dome! He was trying to hide behind these toadstools and leaves on the forest floor, but a tiny chirping bird (Tim Holtz Stamptember 2020 set) caught my attention. Fall is such a wonderful time to be outdoors and observe the changing season, colorful leaves, animals on the move, and catching those earthy odors.
I added a few leaves to the gnome and cut off part of his hat so he would fit into the dome.
I added more die cut leaves and twigs onto cheesecloth I had dyed with coffee. I put the pearls in to represent other mushrooms.
I painted the top of the toadstools red.
Isn't this a cute bird from Tim's Stamptember set?
The gnome is well camouflaged, I am lucky I spotted him!
It was fun to challenge myself to create something I don't often make. There are so many ideas that aren't a card that you can make, so I hope you do and join us this week! Simon Says Stamp is generously offering a $25 shopping voucher again this week.
A great place to shop!
