Hi everyone, Susan K Weckesser has some new stamps with Unity Stamp Co.  Check them out, they are amazing!!!  I can't wait to use them all.

For today's project, I've used the "what's up gnomey?" set, choosing to fussy cut the gnome and some greenery.  In folklore, the definition of a gnome is a small imaginary being usually portrayed as a hunchbacked man with a long white beard who lives underground guarding treasure.  Susan portrays him perfectly.




I chose to color my images with Tombow Markers and then fussy cut them.  I had this 4" x 4" burlap panel that I thought would be awesome to sit him on.  I inked the edges of my images and the burlap panel with Clearsnap Chestnut Pigment Ink, then I arranged the elements on the burlap panel.

Now this little gnome can protect my treasures!!!!

We have FOUR amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway each including one $25 gift certificate to Unity Stamp Co PLUS one of each BRAND NEW Susan K Weckessar stamp sets. Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity & Susan K Weckesser blog) for your chance to win. The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.


 
Thanks for stopping by today.
