More Gnome Pun Cards

Rut-roh! I'm at it again with more Gnome pun cards. This one was prompted by Moxie Fab World's "Map to your Heart" Challenge. Since I collect map papers and love maps, this card popped into my head, which probably reveals a bit too much about my somewhat warped sense of the world.

Here it is!

There's Gnomette Peeking (AP-16-B) from p. 19 of the Summer '05 catalog. She's joined by Gnome Reaching Down (CK-110-B) from p. 42 of the catalog. I thought the two of them together looked as though they were studying something, so I decided to make them peering at Nome, Alaska through a heart aperture.

Both gnomes were colored with Copics and the sky and grass backgrounds were airbrushed. The heart was punched with a very old, but beloved Hyglo punch. The Spellbinders die was from the Nestabilities Labels 11 set. The sentiment was computer generated and now looks a bit askew. I'll go check it...But perfection is overrated. Right?

I scanned our atlas for the Nome, Alaska aperture. The Alaska map background was a public domain map downloaded from the web.

Thanks for visiting today and putting up with another of my groaner of a gnome card. Be forewarned. Metro Gnome will be returning shortly. :D

I will be entering this in the following challenges.
