Newton's Nook Designs Reveal Day #2

Happy Tuesday and Welcome to Day #2 of the 
Holiday Release for October 2014

Today's stamp reveal is "Holiday Hounds"

I just love this adorable set!  I stamped this ferocious little guy
onto brown cardstock and used some walnut ink and a sponge
dauber to shade around the bottom!

I pieced the rest of his attire after stamping onto
different papers, cutting out and then gluing into place :)

The Christmasy papers are by Martha Stewart and the ribbon by May Arts!
