The photo has the background really light. It's not quite that light in real life. Wish I had made the ink a bit darker. I used Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed distress ink to create the background with a Neat and Tangles Star stencil. I used an MFT circle die to cut out a circle and mask off the puppy before doing the background. The puppy is from MFT Happy Pawlidays. I didn't color him up for Christmas though. I paper pieced his hat and scarf. The ball on his hat is covered in Baby Blue Stickles. He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I added and embossed sentiment on the black strip from the MFT All About You stamp set and a die cut one of the Yous from the MFT You Trio dies. I added a few sparkly sequins as embellishments.
I am entering these challenges:

Today I hope to get another project made that I have to teach to Girl Scouts on Saturday. It's a wreath with felt flowers. I have to figure out how to make the felt flowers. LOL! Never a dull moment. Have a super Halloween!
