Critter Christmas

Hi and welcome!  Today's card came about as a result of me wanting to do some coloring and also having some NBUS.  I got an order from SSS the other day and included was the adorable Furry Christmas set as well as the stitched tags from MFT.  I used the colors from Colour Me and the sketch from Friday Mashup to come up with this:



I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's Winter Inspiration challenge.  I took my inspiration from the dog and the antlers in the below pics.

I colored up my critters using Copics, making sure to use red and artichoke as the non-neutral colors to meet the color challenge.  The hat, scarf and antlers were painted with Wink of Stella.  I then cut them out and mounted them onto a stitched tag using foam tape.  The sentiment got the same treatment.  I used the Falling Snow stencil and embossing paste on the card base to mimic the grunge in the sketch.



Thanks for visiting.

So cuuuuuuuute! That's one furry family I'd like to take home! I like how you made the tag from the same kraft color instead of changing it to white. It creates a nice effect.

What a great card! I love the images and how you colored them, but most of all I love the embossing paste snowflakes on kraft. I've tried to make two Christmassy cards with kraft this year and they both failed because they look way too summery. But your take on it is AWESOME!
