Noel Elf - watercolour pencil

It's a time of wonder, a time of bright blessings, it's the magic of winter and Christmas.

This card features a digital stamp by Scrapper's Delight with watercolour pencil.

Putting It Together

I'm not sure when I coloured this image or if it was at work on on our return trip from vacation. Apparently I didn't take a picture of it when the colouring was done. 

After colouring the image with watercolour pencil, I fussy cut it with a narrow margin. I will leave a margin on images to let the image stand out more from the background, like matting.

I got the background paper in a Christmas card kit. I saw this piece in the 6x6" stack and realise the elf would fit on it perfectly, framing the Noel. I matted it with some value cardstock from Micheals and the colours couldn't have been a better match.

To give the elf a little dimension, I popped her up with foam mounting tape. I also added a die cut snowflake, popped up with more foam mounting tape, rhinestones, and a glittered star.

Inside, I used a stamp by CC Designs and two stickers.
