A Very Gnomie Birthday

I have my guest designer hat on today for Fitztown Challenge #40 which is anything Masculine. So I've used Garden 40 image for my card.

Not only have I coloured in this image with alcohol markers but I have also paper pieced his hat and pants.

I have also popped up the mushrooms he is sitting under and added some glossy accents to the dots to add some 3D interest.

Just because it is a digital stamp doesn't mean you can't paper piece. It just means you have to be organised and print out all the pieces you need at the same time so they are the same size.
