Pile It On! Challenge - Pets and/or Your Favourite Way to Colour an Image

It's the third Sunday of the month, so I have another project for this month's Pile It On! Challenge, where the themes are:

'Pets'
and/or
'Your Favourite Way to Colour an Image'

Are sponsor this month is Dr Digi's House of Stamps
Prize - 2 Digis of the winner's choice!

My favourite way to colour an image (as you'll probably know if you're a regular visitor to my blog) is with watercolour pencils. I picked an image by Simon Says Stamp called 'Furry Christmas', coloured them then carefully cut them out. I made a simple background by heat embossing my 'Falling Snow' background stamp (also by Simon Says Stamp) using white embossing powder on kraft card. I also heat embossed one of the sentiments from the 'Furry Christmas' set on a snippet of  kraft card, and cut that out too. To echo the red in the image, I matted it all on to a snippet of red card before adding it to my card blank.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
