Yappy Christmas

Hello. I have been playing with some rainbow Copics:

I used a Whimsy and Simon Says Stamp collaboration stamp set – ‘Happy Pugmas‘. I don’t have dogs – two cats – but I thought this stamp set was so funny, with cute images and sentiments, so now it was time to play…..

The colours were inspired by the current challenge at ‘The Rainbow Card Challenge’ – this time the theme is ‘Holiday Rainbow’. I don’t think I’ve coloured an actual rainbow card before, so I looked for what the colours of the rainbow are, and followed the ROYGBIV – as you can see from my Christmas Trees.

These trees are from the same stamp set, and involved some masking. I first stamped the pug – masked him, then stamped a tree either side, masked them, then stamped again etc…….

I then looked for some Copics to colour the trees following the ROYGBIV for the rainbow, and it just so happened that the pug ended up having the green for his hat and ruffle.

For the baubles, I added some green Stickles. Now – I’m not a great user of Stickles, I have a few of them, but I find I usually make a mess, forgetting it’s still wet and smudging, or the dots don’t look right. I prefer Nuvo drops – they hold their shape better, but this came out quite nicely I think:

I’ll let you into a secret – I had no idea what the colour indigo was – I thought it was a deep purple – but it appears to be a blue/purple hybrid – I did have to google it. I also googled which Copic colours were the best for colouring indigo – and then hubby showed me a new Indigo Blu stamp set just sitting there on our kitchen counter……….with their logo being – obviously – indigo blue……..doh!

The base card is a dark grey – makes a change to white I think, and frames the main layer.
