If there’s one thing I learned from making this card, it’s that colouring a big image like this can restore my mojo! This super adorable image from the Happy Pawlidays stamp set is the design and makes for a quick and easy card. I love all of the cute little details and the kitty licking a candy cane makes me laugh!
I started by die cutting a panel from Dotted Patterns Set 3, then stamping and heat embossing the image with super fine clear embossing powder. I created my custom sentiment using two of the words included in the Happy Pawlidays stamp set, curving it to wrap around the pile of cats and dogs. Then I used mini distress inks to watercolour the entire image and you can find all of the colours on my blog.
After the image dried, I ink blended the edges with weathered wood distress ink to warm up the card. To finish, I ink blended the card base with peeled paint distress ink, stencilled Snow-Fetti on top with white pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It’s a nice subtle way to create a frame, leaving the main image to shine.
