The Ninth Punch Cup of Christmas for the Funkie Junkie Challenge
The pile of glass cups is getting so small..only three to go now that I have the Ninth Cup done and dusted! This one was so much fun! I have a thing for elves so I was excited to find this very small elf at Michaels. Had to fix his paint a little..it wasn't quite up to snuff, so then he got coated in some clear nail polish & glitter...Of course I had to make a real scarf....
You might be wondering HOW even this pertains to Linda's tag which is a cup of coffee...
Well, you are aren't you...Ok, let me go with what I was thinking....COFFEE IS MAGICAL OMG. Plus I was already using a cup so adding another seemed like overkill....I did use that very large snowflake as a background that you can see behind the elf that matches up on the coffee cup.
Other than that, I divereged wildly from her tag with a bunch of rainbow colors including orange glass toadstools. I had to build a little shelf out of foam for the elf, which I hot glued in and coated in glitter glue & glitter.
Added some gold gems to the rim & inked up some of the white paint.
Added some other bright colored inks on the outside & more gold & glitter glue. Was going for a funky tea shop look!
Currently I am stalking the mailbox! Grabbed a bunch of goodies from Linda's Shop on Black Friday. In fact, it was some of the only shopping I did! Good times! Linda's Shop, The Funkie Junkie is sponsoring this challenge and I saw a lot of the awesome elements she has used on past tags for sale!
Happy Hump Day!
