I used Sunsational stamps Santa's List and colored this adorable elf with my Copic markers. I used the colorless blender to give his pants a plaid-like pattern. (I hope you can see it)
The bells on his shoes were colored using Scrapbook.com's gold metallic marker. I fussy cut it out to pop it up (just a little) with foam adhesive, onto my background.
Which brings us to how that was created. I used a piece of 140# watercolor paper and stamped Raisin Boat's Lollipop background with clear VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Ranger white embossing powder and heat set it. I smooshed some Distress inks in Candy Apple Red and Picked Raspberry onto my craft mat and then dropped some water on them to get my watercolor ready. Next I generously swiped water on my embossed piece and then started dropping color into the little 'lollipops' in a random order. Finally I spritzed the watercolor panel with perfect pearls that I have premixed in a mini mister. Stamped the inside with 'You're on the SWEET list!' and called it done. I went with a mix of traditional green along with non traditional light green, light red and bright pink for my color scheme. I kind of lean toward the brighter colors for my cards, but I do mix it up since I make so many.
