I am completely in love with this little Tilda Elf! I wish I could get a better picture to show you how cute she is! This one will have to suffice! Trust me, ADORABLE!
She and the ornament came to me through Diana at the Magnolia-licious store: http://www.magnoliastamps.us/index.php
She is Tilda with Yule cap and big ornament (two separate stamps). Sentiment is from SU! Tiny Talk.
The card base is Papertrey Ink white, then a layer of Cranberry Crisp (sponged with burgundy). The green layer is Basic grey dp fro my Wassail pad. I sponged the edges with Artichoke and distress Walnut. Then I put on the squiggly faux stitching. (I love when I see the real stitching on a card, but I'm not into that, YET!) I stamped the ornament on the green dp to get the hook. I also stamped in on dp fro the Wassail pad and cut it out. I shaded the ornament edges with a copic marker. I also stamped the ornament top onto shimmer white cardstock and colored with a spica silver pen. Glued all that onto the green dp. The burgundy bow was to hid a mistake, but I think it works! I colored Tilda with copic markers (colors below). The sentiment is cut with the small nestability circle and sponged with burgundy. The snowflake behind is a new trick! I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch to punch out a snowflake (duh!) from Scor-sheet (also available at the store above), carefully peeled off one side and put it on my paper. Then I covered it with fine glitter. It didn't show up enough so I laid the back piece over it (as a mask) and sponged artichoke around it. Then attached my sentiment.
Guess that's it except for the colors and here they are; E00, E02 and R20 for the face and hands. Tassel:Y21 and Y08. Hair: E31, E33, E35. Reds: R27, R29, R46 and R59. Greens and for shading on ornament: Yg91, Yg93, Yg95 and Bg96.
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look and especially if you read all this! I really like how this card came out and hope you do too! Have a great Saturday whatever you're doing and take a moment to count your blessings!
