A Rainbow of Santa Hats

This week's Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge is "Colours of the Rainbow".

I inked up my Penny Black stamp of happy little dogs all wearing Santa hats and coloured the hats with Copic markers.  I used the same colour for any of the dogs' collars or gifts.  I then coloured the dogs bodies with coloured pencils so that they weren't as strongly coloured at the hats, etc.  There's a faint shading of snowy ground under their feet.  I then fussy cut along the top edge.

I had a scrap of dp that matched the shading I did for the snowy ground so used that for the background.  I die cut the sentiment twice and glued them together.  The image of the dogs is taped flush to the bottom of the dp, but there is foam tape under the dogs' hats to pop them up a bit.

I'm also adding it to the SCS Free for All challenge "Puppy Love".


Stamps: Penny Black
Paper: white cs, unknown scrap of dp
Paper Size: A2
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: coloured pencils, Copic markers, Tim Holtz merry & bright die cut, foam tape
