Heart 2 Heart - Home Sweet Gnome

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge. 

The theme for this challenge is Vacation/Staycation. Many of us haven't travelled anywhere lately with lockdowns in place for so long... "staycations" are the new normal.

Since I haven't gone anywhere and I don't take pictures of my "staycation" at home, I had to decide on a different approach for this challenge. I used a gnome stamp for a home sweet home idea. 

The background was created by masking around a circle (I cut that on my Cricut) and using Distress Oxide inks to create a multi-coloured background. Once the mask was removed, I stamped two gnomes in black (masked one of them), the flowers along the left side and a sentiment at the top. That piece was adhered to a piece of Sundance cardstock and then to a white card base. Clean and simple! 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the Vacation/Staycation theme.
