More Dachshunds!

Today's card uses the Newton's Nook Holiday Hounds stamp set and is going to be a Christmas card for my Grandmother who also has dachshunds.  The cute stamp with the dachshund in the stocking inspired me to create a fireplace background on which to hang the dachshund stockings.  I didn't have any fireplace stamps, so I decided to draw my own.  I looked around on Pinterest for some inspiration.  I used Copic Multiliners to draw the fireplace around the three dachshund stockings I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then used my Copic markers to color in the wood, bricks, fire, and stockings.  I used my Wink of Stella clear brush pen to add some shimmer to the fire.  I cut out a simple white tag for the sentiment which was stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.
