Elliot Elf at the North Pole
I had so much fun making the last Elf scene I thought I'd make another one. I am pretty happy with how it turned out, except for the back of Santa's sleigh...its looking a bit too 2D for me. But as it IS only 2D...I guess that's not such a biggie ;-).
List of Ingredients:
Cardstock: Real Red, Brushed Gold, Whisper White, Shimmery White, Kiwi Kiss, Blush Blossom and Chocolate Chip (all SU)
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Night of Navy and Real Red Classic Inks (all SU)
Stamps: Merry, Merry (retired SU) and Evolution Magnetic Alphabet (Making Memories)
Punches: 1 3/8" Circle, 1 1/4" Circle, Two-Step owl, Oval Extra Large, Oval Medium, Word Window, Butterfly, Curly Label, Boho Blossoms, Paper Piecing (retired), 1/ 1/4" Square, Eyelet Border, 5-Petal Flower, Small Star (retired) and Scallop Oval (all SU)
Accessories: Ski Slope DSP (retired SU), Brayer (SU), Crystal Effects (SU), Dazzling Diamonds (SU), White Gel Pen (Misc), Real Red Stampin' Pastels (SU), Dimensionals (SU) and Tombow Mono Adhesive (Penwa).
The 'snow' is shimmery white cardstock, the night sky has been brayered in (with a combination of Baja Breeze and Night of Navy Classic Ink), the moon was masked out with the 1 1/4" Circle, and those little blobs of Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds in the sky are supposed to be stars...I am thinking I could have found something better to make stars (maybe next time ;-).
Again, thanks must go to Marie Shaughnessy for her terrific elf-making inspiration and instructions, which you can find here.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend,
