little elf finn...

Hello!!  Hope your week is going well.  We are back to our typical western Washington weather (say that three times fast, lol!) of wind and rain.  Can't complain too much though... we had a great summer and early fall!  I have a card that I made for the current Merry Monday Christmas challenge to put an elf on your Christmas card.  At first I didn't think I would be able to play along and then I remembered the super cute Penny Black slapstick cling stamp called Little Elf Finn that I purchased several years ago.  I love the stamp, but I had never inked it up because I was didn't have a lot of confidence in my coloring skills.  I decided that I could no longer let that stop me from using the stamp and so last night I colored Finn up with my ZIG clean color markers and I must say that I am rather pleased with how he turned out! I did learn one thing... I definitely need more ZIGs, lol!! I kept things simple and just die cut my finished piece and then amounted it on a green cardstock base.  The sentiment is also from Penny Black (Christmas Wishes) and I thought it perfect for my little elf as he does look quite jolly doesn't he???  I think I will also add this to the current Simon Says Stamp challenge of anything goes.


Hope you have a wonderful day...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! and Ranger; Inks:  VersaFine Smoky Gray and Onyx Black; Stamps:  Penny Black; Dies:  AJVD; Coloring medium:  ZIG clean color markers
