CRAFTY LITTLE FAIRIES - HOLLY AND/OR IVY


Hello Again...

Still Thursday...second post, and this time for CRAFTY LITTLE FAIRIES 

A new challenge this month and we are looking for HOLLY AND OR/IVY..

For my card I used this adorable and very cheeky elf from Mo Manning.

Little Elf Finn..



There he is swinging on his Christmas ornament and having a blast...

Skin and hair coloured with Faber Castell pencils and his clothes and hat with a red copic R27 and shading with green pencil..shoes with copic YG03..and bauble with B32.

My new Holly die which now working a lot better..and added some gems..



Side one...just as a light breeze blew in and ruffled his feather....



And side two..showing the muslin cloth...punched snowflakes and sentiment...which again is a new die and used the baking paper on my card as I could not cut the cardstock with the die..yet.

Papers are Kaisercraft 6x6 pad [shh..they are new too]..well, it is nearly Christmas..

So there we go...would love to see your holly/ivy projects at Crafty Little Fairies challenge 

Thanks again for stopping by..I'm off to find some choccies...I'm sure I had a box of scorched almonds tucked away..or maybe I've already eaten them..maybe I should just go and coloured something...not so fattening.

Challenges to enter....

Emerald Fairies   [Christmas red and Green]

See you tomorrow..

I can see why you couldn’t resist those papers, Chrissy they’re beautiful! I love that fab image and those feathers are the perfect finishing touch! They give the card even more movement as if that little elf is swinging past creating a breeze! xxx
