I'm taking a quick break from showcasing my stamp-a-stack cards from this weekend to show you my creation for the Inky Paws Sketch Challenge #4 over at the Newton's Nook Designs blog. I was lucky enough to win the Canine Christmas stamp set during the holiday release party, and also purchased the Newton's Holiday Mischief set and Holiday Wishes. I love the kitties and puppies and the festive holiday themes! As is tradition now, my mom and I sat down last weekend and both created a card for the challenge. I'll be posting the card my mom created in my next post!
Here's the sketch we were given:
And here's my card! I've been really excited about using the cat stamp with the holiday lights ever since I saw the stamp-- Newton gets into so much mischief! I used my black Staz-On ink to stamp the naughty kitty, and then used my brand new Prismacolor watercolor colored pencils to color him in. Then I used a blender pen to even out the coloring. I think I'm in love with these new pencils- they were a splurge, but totally worth it! I decided to continue with the light theme, and used a Fiskars punch to punch out the holiday lights and attached them to my ribbon. Then I adhered everything, and used dimensionals to pop Newton out from the card a bit. So cute!
