Jingle All the Way


Jingle All the Way - Our new challenge went up Friday at Alphabet Challenge Blog and I thought I had a week to go. Ekkkk! Luckly, I had this image and little kit already made, but I had planned to use this card for Crafts 4 Eternity and Alphabet Challenge, so I had to remove the element that I need next Friday for Crafts 4 Eternity. What is that element, you ask? I can't tell you yet. You will have to come back next week for that!

But because I am late for Alphabet Challenge Blog, please help cover me by going and checking out Alphabet Challenge Blog and join our challenge. It is a some what difficult one in that it is J for Jingle Bell. I used it for putting on the bell on this sweet little elf's hat, but you should see the clever ways that my team mates used it!


Here is a close up of this sweet little image by Mo Manning. I colored him with Copics and added a really fine glitter to the candy cane and around the edges of the image. I also added some Strawberry, Flower Soft to the pom pom that ties up his pants.


I added some glitter to the candy brads.


I made this card using the same supplies back when I first starting coloring with Copics, using the same markers that I had used way back when.


Nothing like looking back to see how far you have come. I think in my newer image, the colors are much more vibrant and there is a lot more definition in the face.

What do you think, have I improved?
