Animal Christmas

Welcome to Merry Monday Challenge Day.  Today's challenge comes to us from Sue who has challenged us to use a cat or dog on our card.


I covered all bases and used a cat and two dogs!


I just love this Simon Says Stamp image and decided to make a polaroid image.  I sponged some Tumbled Glass ink onto some white card and then stenciled using the Falling Snow stencil.

After I colored the image with Copics, I fussy cut it and popped it behind the Merry Christmas frame die-cut using foam tape.



And that's it.

Thanks for visiting.  It's raining cats and dogs at the Merry Monday blog (groan!), so be sure to head on over and check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Furry Christmas (SSS)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tumbled Glass
Cardstock:  White, X-Press It
Accessories:  Copic Markers, Christmas frame (SSS), Falling Snow Stencil (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

Karren this is gorgeous! I envy your coloring skills. I've just started collecting copics and have a lot to learn! Your coloring has so much depth, which I have not been able to achieve yet.
