Make It Crafty & Mad For Makers Challnge

Good afternoon :)  Wow the world of digi stamps and card making is so addictive!  Everywhere I look I find images that I really really want!  But I'm trying to be very selective  .... and I just love the Aussie sites as it makes me really proud that we are a talented lot :)

This card I would like to enter into
Mad For Markers Monthly Challenge - Sketch
Make It Crafty - Category 1

Its a fairly plain card with clean lines and minimal bits and pieces but thats what I like.  I really like to make the image the 'star' ... and of course I don't have a lot of bits and pieces to add so I've got to get some and then learn how to put it all together.

So here is my card using a lovely FREEBIE (yep thats right FREE) from Make It Crafty online store. 
I have coloured these gorgeous young lads in copic markers .... just a couple of greens and reds and the usual skin colours.

My base card is just white cardstock, a bit of red corrugated card, some silver shimmery card and a Christmas sticker over the top ... in the corner I have popped some of those rub ons from Kaiser craft.  I cut my oval shape from a bright green bazzill ... I thought the bright green showed the cheekiness and fun of these little elves.  Around the edge of my white oval I ran a red ink pad around the side ... just to tie it all in.

Thanks for checking out my card ... and make sure you head over to Mad For Markers and Make It Crafty for some gorgeous stamps, accessories and fun :)

I added some 'shading' down the bottom of the elves ... first time I have done this ....I used BV31.  It's probably not a correct shadow ... but it does add a little something.  So will have to start doing it more.
