Gnomes Think Spring!

Hi guys! I am back with some spring gnomes at Whimsy Stamps! I did a couple sets for this month, Gnome Think Spring and Gnome Gardeners.  I made this card with one of the Gnome Think Spring guys. This is for my son in law (shhh, don't tell him!) for his birthday in a few days.  This is my twist on the Spotlight technique - I stamped the gnome and cut it out with the Whimsy Stitched Circle die, and then lightly taped it down onto the forest background paper from the Enchanted Forest pack (so that it wouldn't move) and then I drew/coloured in the background using the forest paper as a jumping off point.  
I used a combination of Copics plus coloured pencil on the gnome himself, so I didn't save that list of colours.  But, I did take a photo of the colours I used on the background within the circle, for anyone who wanted to know: 
Thanks so much for coming by today! Happy Spring!
