Candy Cane

I just can't resist this little cute bat.  He's called Marvin from Marina Neira and this particular image is Marvin with Candy Cane.

I've used ProMarkers to colour him and then finished him off with a little black polychromos pencil to add extra shading.

He's been cut out with a Spellbinders die and then distressed and had antique linen and peeled paint distress inks applied.

Design papers are from Lili of the Valley, they've also been distressed.

The sentiment was something I picked up from Hobbycraft last year and never got round to using, the wooden candy cane was also from there.

I've added some ribbon from my stash which was bought from Lili of the Valley when they did their little bags of ribbons.

The snowflake die is a Memory Box one and the black self adhesive gems are from my crafty stash.

So what do you think, isn't he the cutest little guy :D
