Fleas Navidad


Today's card is being entered into the following challenges:
Paper Smooches March 15-28 ANIMALS Challenge
CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #363 - Sketch
613 Avenue Create Challenge #231 - Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: Use Colored Pencils
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge # 68 - Anything Christmas Goes

I have been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. Have you had a chance to play along? I have found it to be great motivation. This is my 25th day of participating in the challenge.

For this card, I used my We R Stamp Press. The press comes with 1 acrylic plate to lay your stamps on. But you can buy an extra plate. Which is what I do, I use 2 plates. That way I can lay the stamps out. Then I stamped the plate that had the Santa hat. So I stamped that twice, the first time onto the card and the second onto Post-It notes to create a mask. I then fussy cut the Santa hat. When I was done, I put the mask over the hat and then I stamped the puppy and his bone on top of that mask. After that I colored the puppy in with colored pencils. And then I used a Fantastix tool and baby oil to blend the colors. When that was done, I brought out my alcohol marker to draw in the puppy's shadow.
