A Spotty Birthday Card Featuring Lady Bug Tomte Gnome

No comments

Good morning Faery fans! DT Vannessa here sharing my card for the newly released digi stamp, Lady Bug Tomte Gnomes. These gnomes are just adorable and I absolutely loved this one with his cute ladybug wings and hat. Did you know, here in the UK, we call them ladybirds not ladybugs? No idea why though as they are not birds! We do have some odd names for things here!


I coloured him up with my Copics and added the clouds, sky and grass to make it look more like he was outside in the garden. I love colouring little scenes like this, but I'm not majorly confident in drawing objects in the background as my drawing skills are not great! Clouds I can do though! 

I kept to a red, black and white combo and even managed to find some of these cute wooden ladybug embellishments. How cute are they? No idea when I bought them or where from, but now I know I have them, I'll be using them loads!
