The Elf

I love the latest challenge theme over at Frilly and Funkie so much that I have decided not only to be inspired by  the most memorable gifts I have received over the years, but also use a part of it in my work. 
As you can see it was a tablecloth I got from my beloved Granny - very unusual for design and colours. It is torn and used now but as a dear keepsake still makes me happy!

I fussy cut a cotton hat and glue it to the canvas (29,5 cm x 9,5 cm).
Next step was stenciling some snowflakes with some texture paste.
I coloured the background with gelatos and added some lettering stamps too.
I made the nose of an oval button and the beard of curly moss which I gave a coat of glitter.


My Elf fits also for:

This makes him extra special as I'm sure you'll recall dear memories of your beloved Granny every time you see him 😁. Those pretty snowflakes and glittery beard are perfect too 😁. Wishing you a happy evening and weekend! J 😊
