Hello and welcome to my blog! This week's Global Design Project challenge is the theme challenge of Love!

Love is in the air as we head towards Valentine's Day next month. It's a lovely excuse to celebrate those we love with a little extra attention and gifts too, if you like!

The gnomes in the Friendly Gnomes Stamp Set are super cute and the sentiments are a bit of fun!

I enjoyed water colouring this little guy! I initially reached for my Stampin' Blends but I couldn't get the look I was wanting so switched to water colouring. I'm happy with how it turned out but it was a little tricky as it is a small image to colour.

For a step by step tutorial on how I created my card please click on the Tutorial button. All products are listed in the tutorial and below.

I've also created a video tutorial, click on the link below to watch!

Please remember to head on over to the Global Design Project blog and check out all the fabulous creations made by my fellow team members and we would love to see your creations using this week's sketch.

See you next week!
