Santa's Elves?


Elf shoes? Or witch shoes? Could it be both? LOL!

This card was made with the Witch Shoes stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it on watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The stamped image was colored with Tombow markers and a blender pen. I added Stickles Glitter Glue to the boots and the hem of the skirts for a little sparkle. I also added some Stickles around the lacy edges of the sentiment.

The background for the sentiment is a cute little stamp from A Muse called Lacy Oval . I inked it first with VersaColor Lime Green ink, then tapped the edges of the stamp with VersaColor Green Tea. The Ho! Ho! Ho! sentiment is also from Stampendous. It was stamped over the inked Lacy Oval then cut out.

The red and green cardstock was Cutlebugged (is that a word?) with the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder. I added a few Green Geo Shapes stickers for added interest. I just love those little jewel stickers. They are soooo cool and easy to use.

So.......we have a Halloween stamp which doubles as a Christmas elf card. Too fun!
