Christmas Critters

 Morning.
Meet this adorable little pair just sharing some Christmas cheer.
Playing with a new image from the Penny Black set called Snow Much Fun.

I began by stamping the image using my Misti, then coloured it using Copic markers.  I added some Wink of Stella over the fox to give him a shiny coat.  Too bad you can't really see that in the photo.
 Next, using a circle die, I partially cut a circle from a piece of cardstock.  I glued that onto my card front and then sponged the bottom area with some Salty Ocean Distress ink to help ground the image. 

I positioned my image inside the circle area and stamped again using Memento black ink.  I did that so I could pop-dot the coloured image over the top and didn't have to fussy cut out the holly and berries.

I stamped the sentiment from the PB set called Festive Snippets.
I bordered the edges of my card front with some red polka dot washi tape and pop dot mounted the whole piece over that.






 Adding my card to these challenges:

  9. I love this darling card. I'm always so disappointed that the Wink of Stella doesn't show well in photos. I can image how pretty this must look IRL. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon!
