Just Add Ink #376 - Just Add D

Hello Crafty Friends,
Hope you are having a fabulous day. I have some fabulous news to share with everyone today, but that can wait for now, as its challenge time over at Just Add Ink. Yipeeee!! This week, Tina has suggested we Just Add "D"

I have chosen to Add Dogs, Diagonal Stripes (in the DSP on the bottom) and Dots. I absolutely adore the Santa Paws stamp set. The stacked cat and dog Christmas tree is such a fabulous image to colour.
 I stamped the image using Black Momento onto a Whisper White card front, slightly trimmed down on the front bottom to allow room to reveal a little strip of DSP. I also stamped the sentiment in Real Red and then put this piece aside. On a piece of shimmery white card, I stamped the image again but this time using Archival Black ink. Let the ink dry thoroughly before using an aqua painter to colour the entire stamped image. Once dry, light washes of Tempting Turquoise ink was used to colour the background.

 I used a variety of sizes from the Layering Circles Framelits, to cut different parts of the water coloured stamped image. Tombow was used to adhere the coloured die cut circles to the stamped image on the card front.  The contrast between the coloured and uncoloured areas is a lot more vivid in real life. I used the same technique for the next two cards.

These two cards use the images from the Ready for Christmas stamp set.Why not join us and play along with this weeks Just Add "D" challenge. Be sure to check out the Design Teams creations, they will definitely help get the creative juices flowing.
