Chubby Chum Christmas

Hello there.  I'm squeaking in tonight with a CAS Christmas card. 


On an A2 size piece of Neenah cardstock, stamped with Copic friendly black ink the hat, then masked it.  Stamped the puppy, then masked him.  Masked a slope, and blended Peacock Feathers distress ink for the background.  


Removed masks and coloured in the image with Copics.  Die cut warm wishes from white scraps three times and stacked them for dimension.  Ombre coloured it with the same red markers used to colour the hat.  Adhered the piece to a white card base then added snow with a white gel pen to finish.



And that's it!  Thank you for dropping by.
