Although there’s a lot of color on this card it is a really easy one to put together. I stamped three of the cute pugs from Bah-Hum Pug and I didn’t even mask them to group them more, just stamped them straight on to Arches cold pressed watercolor card with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I used my usual watercolor palette and pencils then added gold and white gel pen accents. I cut the watercolor down and foam mounted it on a card front which I’d covered with patterned paper.
For the sentiment, I watercolored a scrap piece of card and then stamped one of the punny sentiments from the Bah-Hum Pug set, trimmed out and tucked under the watercolored panel.
I simply added a few enamel dots to finish. Talking of being finished, this is my last Christmas card! I’m now having a blog break except for one post next week. For now, it’s time to indulge in the crazy busy, fun, family & friends time. I’m planning on sore tummy muscles from belly laughing so much and sore ribs from lots of hugging! For those that celebrate I wish you the happiest of Holidays and on to a creative New Year!
