DT Quixotic Paperie - A Christmas Elf Banner

Hi everyone!! We are having a  FESTIVE THEMED WEEK over on the Quixotic Paperie blog and today I am sharing  a banner I made featuring the Christmas Elves Collection from Make it Crafty. 

I've used Make it Colour Blending card and copic markers for my images. 







I  hand cut the ribbon pennants. My patterned paper is from Echo Park and I've stitched them down onto the base. Then I layered on some white doilies, which I'd cut from one of my doily dies, lace and baker's twine before adhering the images with 3D foam dots. I then tied the pennants together with deep red ribbon, and I tied little bells in between them. 

I also added some Make it Crafty lasercut chipboard from the Holly Decorations set which I've coloured with pencils and added some glossy accents to. 

Don't forget - On Saturday 24th November there will be a festive themed giveaway so make sure to check back in at the Quixotic Paperie Blog
