Good Friends are Precious

I had great fun today stamping with my friend Amy. We played with my retired Stampin Up set called Knobbly Gnomes. Amy has decided that the gnome sitting on the mushroom reading his book is name Gerome!

I began by stamping Gerome and masking him off. Next came his buddy, we will call him Sunny, with his sunflower, another mask, and then I added the additional mushrooms on each side. Here are the Copics I used for this scene...
Gerome - face E00, E02; hair E11, E07; hat R35, R37; pants B05; patches YG23; shoes R35, B05; book E25, W3
Sunny - face E00, E02; hair Yr65, YR14; clothing YG23, YG25, YG67; hat YR14, E08; shoes YR65, YR14
Mushrooms E53, E43, E44
Sunflower YR12, YR14
Grass E40, E51, YG63

I airbrushed B21 into the sky and stamped the branches from Stampscapes. I added some orange Spica to the center of the sunflower for a little bling. The DP is from the Basic Grey Mellow Collection and the brads are Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby. Finished size is 5x7 inches. Thanks for stopping by and have a great stamping day.
