Fairy Special!

This card has been made for a male friend of mine. I have used the Alva Sitting stamp which is a female elf but I have made the hair short and put it onto blue and think it may pass as a male elf???

I have used :
Stamps: Alva Sitting (Magnolia), Mouse (Penny Black), Sentiment (Woodware circular greeting), Small toadstools (squiggles stamps) thin toadstools (magnolia) stitches (Kelly Panacci) Big Flower which I made into the big toadstool (Hero Arts) & the ticket was a freebie.
Papers: My minds eye - Merry days of Christmas - All a glow (green patterned paper & blue dots. Magnolia - White Christmas - Frosty Fir. Dark blue bit from scrap box.
Misc: Clear embossing powder and a little glitter used on thin toadstools. Coloured in using watercolour pencils.
I really enjoyed making this card and followed a sketch which made it easier to put together. Not long now till our crafty retreat!!!!  Nicky xx

Hi Nicola

Agree with the others, definately could be a boy elf. Plus some nice distressing and that tiny mouse. Cute.
