Elfie is too cool for school...

Hello there crafty peeps, and Happy Tuesday! 
It’s time again for another “Through the Classroom Door”
“Anything Goes” challenge.
This week our challenge is being sponsored by

Whimsy stamps is a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. Their exclusive stamps are great for card making, scrap booking, and many other crafting projects.
I was generously provided an image from the Marika Collins “Little Gems” Collection.  Marika has designed digital images of adorable kids for the teen and tween market.
"Little Gems" are cute but cool, sweet but bang on trend!

The image I was provided is called “Elfie”

I printed Elfie out on to Neenah card stock and coloured her up vintage fashion using my warm grey collection of Copic markers.

I wanted to have Elfie blend with the colour tones of the Recollection DP’s that I used. A few stickles and some gems here and there was all that was needed.
So peeps, please head on over to TTCRD blog and see what my fellow DTeamies have created for you too, and don’t forget to stop by Whimsy Stamps so you can see all the amazing images available for purchase.
Oh and just to let you know, there will be a new issue of Through the Craftroom Door magazine coming out very soon. So if you haven't subscribed yet, just remember you have access to all the previous issues and all the goodies that came with them.

Let me tell you that up until now I have never owned any of their gorgeous digital images and I must say that I have fallen completely in love with them. I can guarantee you that I will be collecting a lot more too!

Talking about falling in love; coincidentally the image I chose to colour up with my Copic markers is their cutie
