My card today features one of the three images in the Conie Fong set called "Benny's Christmas." This is the one without a puppy but the other two images have cute puppies in them, one long-eared and one short-eared. I'll use one of those on a card later this month.
I'm working on my "water color" skills. Last month, I suffered a vision problem and my eyesight is distorted enough that coloring with markers, even fine-line alcohol markers, is extremely difficult. Water colors are more forgiving (the paint brush kind, not WC markers) but it's so much more difficult to get highlights and shading. This is my best effort so far but I need more practice.
The background dp is from Doodlebug and it's been in my stash for at least 3 years without being used! High time to correct that oversight. I used a Fiskars corner punch on each layer. The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed, and I added a hand-tied satin bow.
This card is for my youngest great-grandson, who will celebrate his first birthday this coming December!
It's time to start thinking about Christmas cards, especially if you haven't made any so far this year. We're more than halfway to the Christmas holidays. :-D
Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
