Sugar Nellie - Mister Elf

Well, I had hoped to have a blog post up for you this morning...and now it is nearly 4 o'clock. How did that happen??  Well firstly a trip to A & E to diagnose a mystery swollen hand in Daniel (which turns out to be an infection...very strange!)  and then lots of tidying, feeding and sorting of the bairns as it is now officially the start of the 'Tattie' Holidays here in the North East of Scotland.

So I wanted to share with you today a card I made with Mister Elf from Sugar Nellie. He is one of this years new Christmas Manga releases.  Now he is coloured with a mix of prismas and copics. I have used the prismas mainly for colouring the background and also for adding some extra shading, for example, on his shirt. I did not have all the green copics I would wish for so I coloured the shirt all in a base of G82 and then added some more depth with a darker green pencil.

The papers are all Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather' which is getting a good use for my Christmas cards so far this year! I love it! You can grab this pad over at the Quixotic Paperie. The sketch is from this week's Mojo Monday.

I will be listing this one in my Folksy and Etsy shops later.

I hope you are all well and have some nice things planned for the weekend. For us I just hope we can have some chilling out time and maybe a nice walk in the Autumn sunshine...if it appears!

Back soon,

Hope Daniel recovers soon - those things can be nasty & are indeed very strange. When I first saw this I thought perhaps it was for the Forum Challenge - the colours are absolutely spot on for warm Christmas colours. Love the stitching & I've sat for ages looking at that green shading - love his elfish boots. The black is beautifully striking too.
Have a good weekend.

I love the paper I'm a bit of a Cosmo Addict TBH. Hope Daniel's hand gets better soon.

Your cards always make me smile. The warmth and the home made feel. Love it! Gorgeous coloring as always... gets to show you - you don't need to have all the Copics to get awesome results!
Get well wishes to Daniel... He probably got it from exploring somewhere or tinkering with soemthing :) boys will be boys. Don't worry too much! :)
