Hey, all!  Welcome back!  I hope you had a great weekend and that your Christmas chores are all behind you :)  Not for me, however.  I still need to put up the tree, decorate the house, buy gifts, wrap them...sheesh!  There is just not enough hours in the day!  How do I go about getting Santa to send me some of those elves?  LOL!

Anyway, I'm still having fun with those images created by Mo Manning for Penny Black.  This one is called Ragged Santa and he is also available in Mo's shop, Mo's Digital Pencil.  I keep forgetting to log my Copic Colors, but I managed to jot these down.  I've been adding some purple halo and dot effects around my images lately, particularly the ones featuring some white.  The purple really makes the white pop.  I picked this little trick up from my insanely talented mother, who gave me a holiday card over Thanksgiving that featured a snowman.  She shaded him with light shades of purple rather than the usual grays or blues.  I totally fell in love with this idea!  Let's hear it for mom :D

I'm going to keep this post short and I will catch you tomorrow with one more Christmas card :)  Until then, stay crafty!  


  1. Loving this raggedy Santa image. I am so stealing the purple background shading idea. I really like it and your right it does make it really pop .
