Minimum Non Traditional Christmas Color Scheme | Art Impressions Santa Paws

Hey everyone! I knew this Holiday season I had to use the Santa Paws stamp set. These pups are too cute! I decided to use the pawsome carolers, which is one large stamp and keep my color scheme to a minimum. Of course these jolly dogs would be howling their howliday carols in the presence of a full moon. 

I stamped the large image of the dogs onto a piece of Neenah 80lb cardstock using Copic friendly black ink. The Santa Paws set also includes several smaller images of dogs and one of them is a Dachshund!! So, I suspect I will probably be showing more examples using this stamp set again in the near future. I have the list of Copic Marker's I used for this card down below. 

Once the coloring was done I fussy cut the stamp image out. This includes the snow landscape area too. I took a piece of black card stock and got out my splatter box. For the white "stars" I used Copic Opaque white. This is similar to a white acrylic paint. To splatter it I thinned it a little with some water onto a acrylic stamp block and used a paint brush to flick it on to the card stock. I like doing it this way because I have control over how much splatter I add. Then I set it aside to dry. This doesn't take long.

While the background dried I used a large Art Impressions Circle Double Stitch die to cut out a piece of yellow cardstock. I mounted that to the now dried background with the white splatter. Before adding the caroling dogs I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink on to the dog scene. Then I mounted that to the card front with a bit of foam tape and circle foam dots, to add some dimension. 

Copic Markers Used:
W9, W6, W4, W3, W1, W0
C7, C5, C3. C1
Y26, Y21, E81, E43
