For my cards, I've been experimenting with several softer colour options than those on the sample sheet above, while keeping the red checked backing paper the same throughout.
Here's a soft blue and grey version [all coloured with ProMarkers]: Complete with twinkling Stickles accents and ruddy cheeks:
Another blue version, this time with extra red details:
And finally, a splash of pink and purple:
Again, the outfit wouldn't be complete without some Stickled trimming!
I've got a fourth colour option in this post over on my blog - Notes on Paper - today, where it's illustrating something Christmassy I overheard [you know how I like to keep my ears open!].
The full details of the Christmas elf sheet can be found here, and maybe I'll see you on my blog later too?
