Traditional Polka Dots

It has been awhile since I made a traditional Christmas card.  I'm really embracing the non-traditional this year.   Today, I put away the pinks, blues and purples and grabbed RED.   I love this cutie.   

I have been playing around with texture.  I have found that I love Polka Dots. the art term is pointillism.  Who cares...they are a bunch of dots and I LOVE THEM.   It is such an easy, subtle technique that creates interest.  Check out all my dots!!

Copics used:
Red: R24, R29, R39, R59
White on coat: C1, C3, C4
Orange: Y12, Y16
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13
Black: N3, N5, N7, N9-  Warm Greys or Tonal Greys would also work
Green: G43, G46, G85
Bag: E41, E42, E43, E44
Ground: W0, W1, W3, 
Hair: Y23, YR14, E39, E29, E33, E49-- this is a complicated blend.
 You can do an easier blend of  Y23, E31, E33, E35  or leave out Y23 for an even easier blend.
