This is Elf 001, colored with Copic markers. I wanted to use red and blue papers, so I made my Elf 001 red and blue, too. Which way do you work? Do you match your coloring to your papers, or your papers to your coloring? I generally color, then match my papers, but every now and then, I have papers in mind, so color my images to match the papers.
This Elf, with his jingle bells on his hat and elf shoes, fits the Jingle all the Way theme, don't you think? And, isn't he cute? I decided to go without a sentiment, as he screams Christmas, even without a phrase attached.
Papers on this card are from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, and were designed for the 12 Months of Christmas Challenges. If you are joining in the Bugaboo Christmas in July challenges this week, join us at the 12 Months of Christmas Link up, too!
