I really love this overall design by Brenda. The diagonal split in the background paper is so eye-catching!
Here's my take. This stamp is not the usual style I pick out but holy moly I had an AWESOME time coloring this guy in. I'm hooked!
I began by stamping Penny Black 40-088 Little Elf Finn with VersaFine ink and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder. I then colored the image with Copics. The outer edges of the cardstock was distressed with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The sentiment, also by Penny Black (30-079 Christmas with Mimi) was stamped with Versafine ink onto Spellbinders Shapeabilities Ribbon Banners. The banner was inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink before stamping the sentiment. Patterned paper by Basic Grey (Indie Bloom).
Thanks so much for popping by today. If you head on over to the Mementos blog you can get a little peek at what we've got planned for this week....
