A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Jingle Belles Pup

The new Jingle Belles Christmas card challenge is "Not a Creature Was Stirring" - use an animal on your Christmas card.

I chose a sweet Penny Black pup, all dressed up for winter in a Christmas scarf.

I watercoloured the dog to keep it paler so that I could have nice contrast with the bright scarf that I coloured with markers. It's bordered with a scrap of dp.

Stamps - Penny Black
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - white cs, unknown dp
Size - 4.75" square
Accessories - watercolour paints, markers
