25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 8


We're into the second week of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event! Today's sponsor is Sunny Studio Stamps


With cute stamp sets such as Santa's Helpers, I ended up with two tags today. Yes, there are dogs in the set, I just happened to pick the cat stamps. :D 


The chubby cat bedecked in Christmas lights makes me laugh. 



To colour him, I used a combination of Copic & Spectrum Noir markers, as well as watercolour pencils to add some extra shading. The red tag base adds a nice contrast, I think. 


My favourite in this set is the kitty in the stocking. 



I used green watercolour powder for the mottled tag base. While it dried, I watercoloured the cat and his stocking and added a thin layer of Stickles to the cuff, heel and toe. Other than drying time, a quick and easy tag.

I so love all your coloring. I was inspired initially by your day 8 and made a tag that included coloring an image. I'm new to coloring images. It was so awesome to see all that you have posted for this event. You are so talented. Thanks so much for all the inspiration!!
