Dachshund Through the Snow by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

Last year Ai came out with the Santa Paws Set and it has to be one of my favorite Christmas sets of all time.  The dogs in it are dressed for Christmas.  Whats not to love?  I picked three of the dogs and made a fun scene. I combined it with the Recollections Christmas Pets 6x6 paper pad that I found at Michael's for a super fun card. 
The images were stamped onto Spetrum Noir Ultra Smooth paper with My Favorite Things Extreme Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.  The colors used are listed at the end of this post. They were fussy cut with EK success Cutter Bee scissors.  You can't tell from the picture, but a Marvy Snow Marker was added to the white areas of the Santa jacket.  The marker goes on wet and is heated until it puffs up.  A Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen was added over the yellow areas on the other two dogs. The dachshund was added with foam tape.
The background was made with Distress Oxide inks onto an oval of Bristol paper. Two masks were cut from masking paper using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Dies.  The masks were applied to the paper before any inking was done.  A soft layer of Stormy Sky Distress ink was applied toward the center of the top portion of the oval and then the Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink was blended around it.  A very thin layer of Black soot Distress Oxide ink was applied around the edges. The top mask was removed and a very light layer of Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide was applied. The bottom mask was removed and a heavier layer of Shaded Lilac ink was applied. All of the blending was done with the distress mini blending tool and blending foams.  Water droplets were added to the entire background with a Distress sprayer. After about a minute, the water was picked up with a paper towel.  A mix of Perfect Pearl colored Perfect Pearls and water was spattered onto the background to give it some shine.  It was attached to the card front with foam tape.
