Elzybells Rudolph and Robin - Season's Tweetings


Hi blogging friends Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net  

Here is another card I made using my all-time favourite Christmas image by Elzybells - it's just so adorable!!   It's a shame that Elzybells are no longer around as I really love their stamps.


The image was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with Faber-Castell and Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  I added some Kindyglitz red to the reindeer's nose and Cotton White Fun Flock mixed with Crystalina glitter along the snowline.

The sentiment is also by Elzybells and is from a clear set which has no name on it. This main image panel is up on dimensionals.

The snowflakes stamped around the image are from a Studio-G clear set and were stamped using Versacolor Laurel Leaf pigment ink.  I heat-set the snowflakes with my heat-gun then added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the snowflake centres.  Here is a wee close-up - you can always click on the pic for a larger view:



The burgundy panel was embossed using my Snow Dots embossing folder.  I decided to punch the ice blue cardstock with my Icicles punch, but now it looks a little lost against the dp background - oh well - it was a nice idea........maybe I should have added some stickles to it to make it stand out?  Too late now as I would probably make a mess!

I kept thinking I needed to add a ribbon somewhere but in the end thought it best to leave it off.  I find it really hard to not use ribbon on a card - it just doesn't seem to feel right somehow but I don't know why!!
