Merry Pup-Mas

Happy Tuesday Friends! It's time for some Christmas cheer....puppy Christmas cheer πŸ˜€πŸΆ The new super adorable 'Pups for Christmas' clear stamp set from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong line was used to create my first Christmas card for this season. I am totally in love with this new set and one of the reason is that these cute pups look so much like my Luna when she was a pup. Crissy told me that Luna was in fact her inspiration when she drew these super cute images. So of course I had to color this sweet little cutie and make her a fawn little Boxer pup πŸ’— 

...and here is Luna πŸ’“ when she was 3 months old. That was last year in October.

I created the background using Distress Spray Stains (salvaged patina & prize ribbon). I then sprinkled on some white acrylic paint and white shimmery mica powder. I also drizzled on some water to create even more texture. The large white star was added using white pigment, white ink, white marble glitter and the Twinkle Cluster stencil. The image was stamped onto Strathmore mixed media paper and colored using Caran D'ache Pablo pencils.

  1. What a cute your dog is. I really like the stitching on the frame. Things like the stitching, are great elements for people to look at it but maybe just a little bit closer. Keep them wondering.
