Newton's Nook Designs: Inky Paws Sketch Challenge #4

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!
