Color Hues #28

Good afternoon. It's the middle of the month so time for a new colour combo at Color Hues.
Here's my take on the new colours.

Red and Kraft just shouts Scandie Christmas so I decided to include some gnomes alongside a Nordic stencil background and a punny sentiment.
The Gnomes are from Stamping Bella and the stencil used for the background and sentiment are Funky Fossil.
I love these cute gnomes, especially the grumpy one, and couldn't resist buying them awhile ago after a Copic colouring class. I've missed getting together and crafting in a group, hopefully it wont be too long before we can get together again, I only need level 4 to complete the basic programme.
Any road, after stamping the gnomes, I coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them and attached them to a die cut white panel, the middle one popped up on pads. The background, I already had left after the Uniko/Funky Fossil Instahop, so just used up a couple of bits to make my central panel, you can't see the join under the gnomes, but I did attach one the wrong way up to begin with!! The stencil was laid over a panel of kraft card and Ranger Texture Paste added. I still have a few bits left so they may make an appearance later!
So where will these colours take you, as always we'd love to see.
