Floppy the Elf



Happy Wednesday Everyone! I'm back with a new card. Last night I had time to color in one of the super cute elves from Make it Crafty! His name is Floppy and I think he is just stinkin' cute!

It is so much fun coloring him and as usual I used my Copics. (colors used listed below). There was a time when I really disliked coloring with reds with my Copics but meanwhile I absolutely enjoy it and I like how it turned out. The DP is from Prima's North Country Collection. Sentiment is designed by Raindrop Echo Designs and available through Whimsy Stamps. I just used a little bit of Stickles on the flowers and some paper glaze on the bell from Floppy's hat. Leaf punch is from EK Success and the poinsettia is punched out using dies from Marianne Design.

This card is a pre-order. Actually so far all my Christmas cards shown were pre-ordered. I have a few more to do and planning on using at least 2 more of the cute MiC elves for the orders :-)

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me today!

And here are the colors I used to color Floppy:

Gold: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
Red: R39, R27, R14, R12
Green: YG67, YG25, YG23, YG21, YG0000
Hair: E19, E18, E15, E07, E13
Black: C 9 -7-5-3-1-00
To tone down the reds and greens and deepen the shadows I used the warm greys
W 7 -5-3-1-00
Outline: B000, B0000
And for the ground I used the warm greys again.
