Anyway enough of my waffling as I'm here to show off some new goodies I treated myself to in the shape of MFT 'Santa's Elves' stamp set and matching dies. I used my usual Promarkers to colour the tree and one of the elves (there are 3 in the set) with Stickles on the fur and a glitter sakura pen for the star and hat bell. The scalloped circle was die-cut from glitter paper that had been stuck to some card and the plain circle was die-cut and then run through with a dotty embossing folder to give it a bit of texture. I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set and after I put it all together I added some pearls and gemstones.
and here's one that shows the glitter a bit better
I'm heading over to the following challenges
MFT Sketch challenge
ABC Christmas challenge 'H for hats and/or I for ice'
As You Like It challenge 'favourite colouring medium and why' (my 2nd entry - my trusty Promarkers always work well for me)
Allsorts challenge 'use pearls'
and as I used snippets of card and glitter paper I shall head over to Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge to see Miss Di, Parsnip and the other Playmates
That's all from me today - we're off to do some shopping and as I'm still limping along with my very sick laptop we'll also head into PC World and hopefully get me a new one. Thanks for popping by today and I will be round to catch up with you all just as soon as I can.... even if I have to liberate Hubby's tablet to do the job.
