Little Elf Finn


I'm seriously thinking of Christmas cards and coloured in some Little Elfs this one is called Finn he is available has a digi image from Mo's Shop or a Penny Black Stamp Little Elf Finn.
My problem at the moment is I can't stop making shaker cards but I resisted only because I couldn't promise myself that I wouldn't get glue on the acetate and least on card I can rub the stuff of when its dried.
First of all I stamped some Simon Says Stamps Lots of Snowflakes onto the bauble and used my favourite white embossing powder from WOW. I then blended some Turquoise ink on the bauble.
Why I decided to cut out the image but glad I did it worked a treat although adding the silver twine was a bit of nightmare running it through the image.
So once my little chap was layered on my Simon Say Stamps Stitched Frame and then added to the Doodlebug stripy paper it was time to decorate.
I kept it quite simple by using the Simon Says Stamp Abby Snowflake but I did layer them twice to help them stand out on white. The fishtail banner sentiment was using Simon Says Stamp Presents and Ornaments stamp.
Finally once my glue is set I added the mixture I made using Fun Flock and Flower Soft for the round the hat, bobble and bottom of the tunic.

This is a really cute image Debby and I love the way you have threaded the twine through the image to hold it and the red striped paper goes perfectly, also the stitched frame with the added snowflakes shows the beautifully coloured elf off wonderfully. x

I adore this card, Debby! If I thought I could, I'd make 80 of these to send out at Christmas time. Mine would never look like as magical as yours, though!
