Christmas Scene Card

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. Our challenge is on Pets/Man's Best Friend/Fur Babies. Our sponsor is Dr. Digi's House Of Stamps.

I looked online for images of a sleeping dog on a couch and this is how I got inspired to create this card scene. I sketched my idea, taking notes on what supplies I will be needing. I was aiming to use one patterned paper collection but I had to look into another paper collection, My Mind's Eye, for the wall and the floor. 

I printed the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I created a sweater for the dog (although it looks like a blanket to me) by tracing the outline on the patterned paper. I used a tracing light pad to do this. It was difficult to do this on a double sided patterned paper but I just did my best. I traced the lines with a marker. I fussy cut this and ran a brush marker on the sides. I created a matching cap for the dog. I stamped hat on the same patterned paper and on a white cardstock. I fussy cut this and layered the white trim to the patterned paper. The cap was too wide for the dog. Using the original image as a guide, I modified the cap to make it custom fit to the dog's head. I cut this on the line and ran a black marker on the sides. I added Marvy Uchida Snow Marker on the trim.

I  colored the digital image with Copic markers. I added details to the sofa by adding dots. I also added stripes to the slippers.

Working on the scene, I fussy cut the Christmas tree from a Simple Stories cut apart patterned paper. I  cut a My Mind's Eye woodgrain patterned paper to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" for the front panel. 

I die cut the window frame using Mama Elephant Peek A Frame Creative Cuts on a white cardstock. I die cut this window on the woodgrain patterned paper, too. This die cuts the window with the intent to have the window open. Since I am not going to use this feature, I taped the window on the back. I inked the white window frame with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I adhered this to the woodgrain patterned paper, lining it up with the cut window frame. 

I trimmed a piece of MME dotted bluish-green patterned paper. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to give it an aged look. 

I adhered the Christmas tree. I added gift stickers to the base of the Christmas tree. I added the sentiment sticker which I adhered first to a white cardstock and made it into a banner. I adhered a gold star sticker on top of the Christmas tree. 

I created a snowy sky backgound fro the window. I splattered Copic Opaque White ink on a blue cardstock. I dried this with a heat gun. I adhered this to the back of the window panel, making sure it shows through the window.

I adhered the digital image with foam square. I colored the Christmas tree dots with Tonic Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen. I added Nuvo Crystal drops and set this aside to dry.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations in our blog challenge. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day! Stay safe always.
