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.

  10. Sandra, I must of missed this one... I do not think this one was easy for you, I feel like you had some problems. To me it looks like you where trying to get the sepia tones. Girlfriend you did an awesome job because it is not easy to get those tones and you did it. I love the vintage look you tried to get and you did get it and the circles bring attention right to your image. Her hair is really different but I love what you did, hair looks nice and fluffy. Great job!!!
