Hope you're keeping well and safe just one more week to go until a very unusual first lockdown Christmas day, lets hope your days are full of magic ♥...
I wanted to pop by to share a little mid challenge inspiration, there is still plenty of time to take part in our current Anything Goes challenge as we're running it until 8th Jan...
I had the idea to make some elves using the new face dies and stamps...
I created four (for now), I simply doodled a fun tall hat to accommodate a dl(slimline)size card, no straight lines, you could fold the patterned paper over to recreate this on a smaller sized card blank.
I had fun inking up the background with distress oxides, I blended weathered wood, into evergreen bough into speckled egg. I then stamped a subtle pattern with a couple of swirls and some speckles in the opposite blend of oxides(if that makes sense?)
The faces were simply coloured in with watercolour pen and a touch of glitter. The hats I finished off with some rediscovered filigree liquid which I am super impressed is still fluid and working in the texture department.
I have die cut a heart, and it turned upside down to give the impression of a collar. I finished the card with a mix of sentiments to complete the theme.
I also would love to enter into these wonderful challenges too...
