Three Ways from Monday! with Penny Black

I've gotten a really late start on my laundry today... this cutie might have had a hand in it! 

I had loads of fun with Bauble Balance from Penny Black, and paired him up with some really wonderful holiday papers from Pinkfresh Studios - Holiday Vibes.

That sweet little sentiment is from Pinkfresh Studios - December Days
A little bit of stormy sky DOX ink completed this first of two
Copic colored elves.
Here are the ones I used... 

Since I had the Copics out on my desk, why not a second coloring?  I even added 'snow' with my Copics today!

Another December Days sentiment - this one has a coordinating die!!
and the chosen Copics used:

I did mention three, right?  Third time is a total charmer with a bit of Arteza Twimarker coloring!  Because I'm such a lover of words - the sentiment in this set just makes me smile, big time... tell me you don't LOVE his grey overalls!

the shine on this card is so pretty irl -
a bit of white gold Kuretake Gansai Tambi added to
the puddles of color on my palette did the trick.  Adding a bit of the skin tone
to that blue bauble did the trick to add his reflection!
That grey paper?  has been hoarded so long, I couldn't tell you whose it is!

Thanks for stopping by … your visits make my Mondays much more fun than the loads of laundry that I'd better get to... xx

These 3 were definitely worth holding off on the laundry for Michele! I love all 3, but maybe the last one stole my heart a bit more! Cute, cute, CUTE!! :0)

Mac Mable said...

Yes I agree with Marcia...hole the laundry x. A super cute image and so beautifully coloured on all three. You sure had fun with the three of them and yes loving the grey dungarees and the attention to detail with the reflection in the bauble on your third card. Beautiful cards Michele...all of them x.

I am loving the pinked edges of your frame on the first one. So clever and eye catching. And you just keep the cute coming with the second and third. Fantastic trio!

CUTENESS times three!!! Oh that little elf has me smitten. Yes, I love the gray overalls and I think those ornaments are my favorite...right down to his reflection!

Jeanne said...

Oh boy! SO worth the wait on getting laundry done. You are definitely inspired with this set. Look at those three delightful cards! All colored wonderfully. My grin is super big looking at these fabulous cards. :) XXOO

Birgit said...

These are all so adorable! Perfectly colored and paired with just the right papers. I'm smitten over the first card. So CUTE!

Linda Callahan said...

This is how I look trying to carry all the decorations down from the attic every year.....only I am not as cute as this little sweetie...... no matter what color scheme you used he is adorable!

LeAnne said...

LOL, I agree with Linda, carrying all the boxes up from the basement! But I am no elf! These are all as cute as can be....and each charming and unique in their own special way! I am IMPRESSED at your designer paper---you go, girl!

JulieP said...

I can't even begin to pick a favorite!

Bonnie said...

I do love his gray overalls and the gray paper behind him! The colorful patch makes a great fashion statement! All three are beautifully colored and framed. Love the snow and would love to know how you did that.

I'm late, sorry to visit on Tuesday but it was so worth it. Love this smug looking elf...doing his decorating job so well. Your coloring and background choices are, as always, perfection.

Bobby said...

These all came out so cute, Michele. The colors are great and so is the fussy cutting. I wish I'd stamped mine in a different place on my cs but I'll work on it tonight while watching NCIS.

Lindsey said...

Definitely worth the stop to see your other two cards and to hear “your voice” explain all the details. A trio of cuteness today!

Barb Ghig said...

Oh my gosh, this little elf is absolutely adorable and you have brought him to life with all of your beautiful coloring, Michele! Great choice of DSP and the touch of white gold on your last card is divine!

TK said...

Adorable!!! Love, love, love :o) Those gray bibs are my fave!
