Happy Howl-idays |Avery Elle

Hello, crafty friends!
I can't believe that this is already the last day of August!
And it means it's time to start making holiday cards. right? :)
So today, I'm sharing my first Christmas card of 2016 with you.
I started off by brick stenciling on the watercolor paper using distress inks.
I used Vintage photo, Ground espresso, Black shoot, Antique linen, Fossilized amber and Barn door.
I then die cut the stenciled panel using two square dies to express fireplace.
From this step, background is completed!
Next, I stamped milk bottles from Sweet Tidings, light strand from Retro ornaments and dog from Happy Howl-didays stamp set of Avery Elle onto Strathmore bristol paper.
I colored them using Zig clean color real brushes.

For milk bottles, I used Carmine red, Wine red, Yellow, Green shadow and Pale grey, Haze blue.(these colors are not shown well in the pic)
For puppy coloring, I used Grey, Light grey, Oatmeal, Carmine red and Wine red.
I then white heat embossed the sentiments from Happy howl-idays stamp set.

To finished off, I assembled the all pieces where I wanted them on the card base using foam tape for dimension.
Puppy is waiting for his Santa with holiday milk bottles for him :)

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Hugs, Dana.
