Elf Kaylee

This girl has GOTTA be my fave from this release, although I really love Winter Tobie too.. and Pink Ribbon Mae. Oh, and Cowgirl Mae. HECK! I can't choose a favourite. Can you!?

So here is ELF KAYLEE. Isn't she a sweetie?! Love her little outfit, and that pile of gifts. Those ears of hers make me sooo happy too! :) I've coloured her using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my yummy papers from Echo Park. 

I've been getting a lot of questions about which combo I use for my skin. It's always, unless I otherwise say - Blush, Soft Peach, Rose Peach. Baby Pink for their cheeks, and either Lavender or Burnt Orange for the deepest shadows, depending on how I'm feeling! LOL.

I've kept the layout of the card pretty simple. I love the big image panel and the embellishments layered on top of it, I've been rolling with that 'technique' a lot lately. I've die cut some yummy MFT Dienamics Snowflakes from vellum and attached them using some brads from Doodlebug. I've added some green gems and a cute little sentiment from Amy R to finish it off.

Can I ask you all what you think about the blue glow around the image? Do you think it could be extended a little more without her looking like shes stepping off of a space ship?! I feel like I'm heading away from fussy cutting my images out right now (no doubt that urge will return soon).. so I wanna play more with the white space around my images. Any tips?

That's all from me! Head over to the Some Odd Girl Blog now and check out the newest KAYLEES in our digi family. Thank you for stopping by. xo
