Meerkat Christmas

Hi!  Toni with you today having a fine old time watching these Katzelkraft Meerkats catch a glimpse of Santa. They are too too cute!

I started the card by stamping the sleigh from Katzelkraft Christmas Holiday Accessories then diecutting the stars.  Next I used Zig watercolor markers in broad strokes to create the ground and sky. I used my heat gun a lot as I didn't want the watercolors to bleed but no worries when they did; I just added another few strokes of the pen. After the watercoloring had completely dried, I spattered the card to create snow. I set that aside and began on the meerkats.

I think Copic coloring the meerkats was my favorite part of the whole card. I find them to be so cute and expressive. When I saw them a BUNCH of ideas came into my head for using them.

Birthday:  Is that for me?
Birthday/Celebration:  Happy dancing
Christmas/other:  Do you hear what I hear?

Do you have other ideas?  How about the below meerkat picture (courtesy of the San Diego Zoo)? Look at him!  He's like people!
Do stop by my blog, Frankie Helps Craft, for a full list of ingredients and to check out my other work.  See you next time!
