* Vera Lane Studio: Christmas Elf


It's almost here!

This Christmas Eve I would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas! I hope you'll have a wonderful festive time and spend it with those you love.

I have another festive little helper to share with you today. He comes from Vera Lane Studio and is part of a set called Christmas Cheer. He comes complete with his sister (whose card you can find here) and the Christmas Cheer quote.

The images are coloured with Copic markers with white, Posca paint pen highlights. They are fussy cut and added to the Brusho background. To create the background I used mixed media paper, spritzed it on both sides with water to help prevent warping and shook the Brushos powders on, being careful to create two distinct areas of sky and grass. I used several blues and greens and a brush to create the desired effect. The sky background has some White Glitter embossed snowflakes. One of the trees was glued directly onto the background and the other two were popped on foam dots to give some dimension. At this point, I decided to add plenty white paint splatters. The elf was also popped on foam and the sentiment was cut into strips, adhered to the background and outlined with black fine liner pen. The edges of the background were inked with Faded Jeans and Black Soot Distress Inks to add a frame.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
