More Xmas Fun

I'm back with another Xmas creation using my Santa's helper Tilda (she is so sweet and so fun to sit on things!) This time I have perched her on my 'noel' stamp, also from magnolia. I am loving how bright the blue colours I coloured her with have come up, it was actually a but of an experiment, I have been playing around with my markers and trying new things lately and am really loving just sitting around in the evenings colouring stamps.

I have kept this card pretty simple, a few snowflakes with my MS punch, the smaller ones come from a random small punch in my collection, and a large blue sequin snowflake. The digi ticket is once again from Bizzy Bec's, I am loving these, they are a new addiction. The large pearl brad I picked up from Target a few weeks ago when they had reduced a heap of stuff to clear stock. The ribbon I got from spotlight ages ago. The papers are all from the stash too. The fur trim on the hat and white snowflakes have all been glittered and I whipped out the sewing machine and did a little stitching. I finally got the tension right on my zig zags :) The large snowflake and small snowflake on the base and Tilda have been raised with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension.

Here is a full shot of the easel card: A close up of the top of the card:

Time for your close up Tilda:
