Bah Humbug!

Morning all.
Christmas is nearly here but we have one further challenge for you at Cardz4Guyz before the big day. We would love to see your cards for blokes that feature a-


Here's my take using another of my Brusho panels.

I was wondering the other day what's the difference between a gnome and a gonk, well apparently gonks only ever show their noses! Who knew? I can see this grumpy chaps eyes, so he's definitely a gnome! In fact he's a Stamping Bella gnome, one of a trio that I bought a while ago, coloured with Copics and then fussy cut. He does look a little too grumpy, hence the title of the post. I was going to add it to the card but my design didn't look quite right, so left it off. It's a simple layered design, Brusho cling film panel to which I added some Brusho SprinkleIT iridescent gold glitter with the Brusho and a couple of die cut snowy hills and trees. This time I wet my panel BEFORE adding the Brusho and SprinkleIT, the effect is much better than the first try here. I love how the SprinkleIT makes the sky shimmer and sparkle. A simple Uniko sentiment completes.

We'd love it if you joined in with this final challenge of the year and should you need more gnome or elf inspiration, check out the rest of the team here.
Merry Christmas
