Little Gnome Agenda with Jennifer

Hi everyone! Jennifer here today to share with you the card I created using Mama Elephant Little Gnome Agenda Stamp Set.

I think that the Little Agenda Stamps Series are really great because they offer endless creative possibilities. These little super cute Gnomes are perfect for creating Christmas and greetings cards, of course, but they are also great to create fantasy-themed projects. Well, I choose to follow this second path and created a small illustration as a tribute to the J.R.R. Tolkien's book, "The Hobbit".

I know that in the story the protagonists are dwarves and not gnomes, but I couldn't resist the temptation to play with these little guys and to put them in the dragon's lair. Two years ago, Mama Elephant created one of my absolutely favorite Stamp Set, "Me and my Dragon", and this occasion was perfect to match it with the Little Gnome Agenda, to have a fantastic Smaug for my scene.

As usual, I started creating a sketch of the scene I wanted to realize. I stamped my characters, I added some details to the gnome-Gandalf and then I drew the dragon's lair with the treasure. Then, I recreated the same scene on a watercolor cardstock.

In this case, I used many types of colors and many techniques. At first, I colored the Gnomes, the Dragon and the treasure coins with watercolors, watercolor pencils and watercolor markers. I created the shadows with pastel pencils and I relized the details with Prismacolor pencils.

I really love to mix and match many different techniques, because I think that every type of color is perfect to create a different effect and texture. At last, I added the light effects using a white gel pen.

I really enjoyed making this project, and I hope it will be an inspiration for you, to follow your fantasy and create something unexpected.

As Mama Elephant said: "Be brave with your stamps, and the possibilities are endless"!

Thanks for joining me!

Have a beautiful and colorful day!

  9. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
