Xmas Melody

This is my first Xmas card using Stacey Yacula's design. I'm so excited because every single one of Stacey's designs is just so cute and adorable.

I first started out by creating the background with watercoloring mix of grey and black. After it was dry, I randomly added white circles by applying white pigment ink through my son's circle stencils. This piece of background paper is used in the back of critters as well as the sentiment. I colored the Xmas critters with distress markers then fussy cut them.

Finally when coming to assembling the card, I cut out a window from my woodgrain cardstock and stick the background card behind. I adhered the critters with foam tapes so that they pop out from the window, which is not very obvious from the picture.



I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.
