How adorable is Candy Elf C by A Day For Daisies?Totally!And what’s more this cutie is calorie and sugar free ūüėÄ All coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers and 3D Crystal Lacquer on the sweetie for that cellophane wrapped feel…

Here’s a closer look.Please excuse that the reds look more pink on this one.Think it’s because I had to hold my craft lamp nearer to capture the shine.That’s what I’m really trying to show…

I also used a Graph’It Shake Marker in Gold to make the little dangly things on his hat jingle bell like,but I suppose they could be anything you want then to be depending what you added ūüėČ

I placed him on this beautiful backing paper and layered with coordinating green card.Around this is wrapped a length of baker’s twine.The wooden candy cane is painted with Gesso.Once dry I lightly ran a red Stardust pen over the top,allowing the ink to flow so as not to clog the nib.Next (as I couldn’t find my clear Stardust pen) I coated the white stripes with¬†Winsor & Newton¬†Iridescent Medium.It’s quite sparkly IRL but the camera failed to pick it up ,and not my lack of photography skills as you’d assume ūüėČ After stringing the bells onto a shorter piece of twine they were tied on,finishing in a bow.A tiny dab of dries clear PVA stops the cut ends from fraying ūüôā The greeting has been embossed with a magazine freebie border folder.
