The Pink Elephant Challenge #43

Happy Monday and Pink Elephant Day!!

This week, we have a super fun challenge over at The Pink Elephant!

We are challenging you to use your Favorite Coloring Medium!
Super easy, huh?!?! I love my Prisma pencils, but I chose to use Copics on all of my pieces this week. I am starting to get better with them and do really love using them.

Our sponsor this week is Christine Wooden from All That Scraps

I am so in love with the CC Designs images! They are the sweetest little things ever!
I was lucky enough to buy the whole Christmas release (dh bought it for me for my birthday!) when Christine had it available for a limited time. Don't fret though....it will be available again on Dec. 1st, I believe.
This is one of the sweet stamps from that set along with the sentiment. Sadly, the camera doesn't pick up the sparkle...but this is a really sparkly card!

I used  Stickles on his antlers, sweater and the green brads. I also added dots of Stickles along his 'seat'. I cut out the circles with Nestabilities and embossed the white one with the CB Season's Greetings embossing folder. The background was embossed with the Candy Cane Stripe folder.

Next I had to use the Santa Birgitta Swiss Pixie. She is so sweet!

I colored her with Copics and then added Stickles to her wings, cuffs and bottom band of her dress. I used Marvy Velvet Puffy marker on her hat brim and ball. I embossed the background with the Candy Cane Stripe folder even though it is hard to see in the picture. The sentiment is from that Christmas set I bought from Christine.

Finally....my favorite project this week:

This ornament uses  Swiss Pixie Nora. Isn't she the cuuuuuuuuuuutest???
I used Copics again and added polka dots to her boots and scarf with a white gel pen. I added Stickles to her wings and to the snowflake buttons. This is all layered onto a child's wooden domino that has been covered with Eskimo Kisses paper. I then wrapped ribbon around the edges, brought it through the button and tied it at the top for a hanger.I left Nora's scarf unattached and curled it up to add even more dimension.
Here is the ornament from another angle:


You can see the curled scarf and the ribbon that goes around the edges better in this shot.

I had so much fun with this week's challenge. A HUGE thank you goes out to Christine for sponsoring us this week. Please do stop by All That Scraps and check out all of the fabulous stamps that she has to offer. You won't be disappointed! Also don't forget to stop by TPE and see what all the other designers did this week!
