In the Deep Midwinter: Elf with Star

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Welcome to the day after Christmas as we start to wind down our December Challenge:  In the Deep Midwinter.   You still have until the end of the month to enter your projects for a chance to win some free stamps.

For this card, I used the Elf With Star stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  The background is a section of a paper collage master board I made using wintry colors and patterns.  I edged that with some silver ink and layered it with a white panel.

I stamped the elf with black ink onto a white paper scrap and fussy cut him out.  I then colored him using Copic Sketch markers.  I added a star to his wand and accentuated his eyes and mouth with a black marker.  He was then attached to the card front along with two little blue washi tape dots I placed in the lower right corner.

So come and join the fun here on the Portal.  We look forward to seeing what you create before the end of the month to celebrate the Deep Midwinter!
