I FOUND SOMETHING NEW!!!
Sorry to shout...I just HAD TO... you see, I found these new images. Yup... Uber Cute and PERFECT for coloring with my Copics. And guess what... they are Digital!!! OMG. I've resisted digital up until now because I really like the feel of wood and rubber, ink and acrylic. But I saw these adorable "Pixie Chicks" over at Charmed Cards and Crafts and knew I had to give it a go. It was actually much easier than I thought.
Here is just one of the sweet little elves... (there are a bunch in the download). I call her Holly, The Holiday Elf. (Brilliant - I know!!! LOL) She is soooooo sweet! There are all sorts of things in the download for her to be sitting on, but I really just wanted her... so I cropped the excess circle under her legs and it sort of looks like she is sitting on a swing or a wall. (Oh, okay... so it really doesn't, but I like the way it looks anyway!)
I used Copics to color her in, Stickles glitter glue for the wings and the fur trim, and a white gel pen for the highlights in her eyes.
The layout for this card comes from this week's challenge over at Papertake Weekly. (It sort of evolved from the sketch into this... I would say I was "inspired by" the sketch...) Check out what their awesome DT did with the sketch.. WOWZERS! And play along... you could win a $25 gift certificate from My Creative Classroom... good towards ANY class being offered this fall! (And there are a LOT of them!)
And thanks for stopping in today!
