CCMC123 Merry Crittermas

Today is the Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  We've started a new round of Challenge Team Members and have a couple NEW faces for you and I KNOW you will enjoy their work!  So, here is the sketch we are using this week!



When I first saw the Merry Crittermas set, I was so-so about it…but…since I have it and have been watercoloring the little critters, I am having SO much fun!  Their little faces are SO sweet!  Here is the card I made using the sketch!



I started by selecting the little kitty from the set and watercolored her with Stampin' Write Markers the same as my own kitty, Bleach!  She is Basic Gray with spots of Crumb Cake "bleach" marks…that's how she got her name!  I layered the Whisper White on Garden Green.  I used a piece of the glitter stripe pattern from Candy Cane Christmas Designer paper and placed it on a layer of Blushing Bride that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Petals A Plenty Impressions Folder.  The base of the card is Baja Breeze.


I added a strip of Real Red Satin Ribbon across the front and two In Color Glimmer Brads in Blushing Bride color.  The greeting from Merry Crittermas was stamped with Basic Black on Whisper White and punched with the Small Oval punch, then layered on Baja Breeze cardstock.  Up in the right corner I added three large Rhinestone Jewels.  Oh…and I added the cute little bird from Merry Crittermas next to my singing kitty cat!  I think it turned out CUTE using some non-traditional colors!


Again, make sure to check out what the other Challenge Team Members did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  And…grab your stamps and play along!  We love to see what you do with the sketch!  Make sure to label it CCMC123 and mention Create with Connie and Mary in your post!
