It’s day three of the 24 tags of Christmas series for 2015! You knew there’d be some traditional Copic, right? (Yesterday I colored Copic on wood – check that out HERE.) If you’d like to see last year’s day three tag, click HERE.

Shading Elves

Lots of folks want tips on shading of images….and since this adorable stamp set has a bunch of images in it, I thought it would be fun to color each one with the lighting from a different direction! Check out the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

Could this stamp set BE any cuter?? I’m going to be stamping a bunch to take home with me for Thanksgiving and coloring up a storm – love that I can use a limited palette – so just take a few markers and refills that work together!! woohoo!

Sandy Allnock 24 Tags Shading Elves in Copic



Handmade is the best kind of giveaway! Each year I give away all of the tags made in the series – so there will be 24 winners! To sweeten the pot, I am giving a financial donation to 24 charities in the name of each of the winners – so they’re going to get to pick which charity they love most.  To qualify to win, leave a comment on this post with YOUR favorite charity, and a comment on the YT video each day all week. I’ll pick 12 from blog comments and 12 from YouTube comments, and announce them all on Sunday the 15th!
