IKE's Art Photo Inspiration: Dis Cracker Iz Mine Christmas Card

Hi all

I am posting my make for IKE's Art Challenge We will be on the Christmas break until January.

Well the Christmas Tree has survived so far but i hear the odd thud as one of the cats gives the baubles a whack but so far they haven't tried to climb it. I have the presents wrapped and most of the shopping done so bring it on i have Vodka and Brandy at the ready.

I used Crackercat because mine are crackers too but i just thought he looked cute before ripping that thing to bits. I can just picture the carnage now. The papers are from the First Edition A Christmas Story paper pad. 

I colored in the image using Prima Watercolor pastels and just used a water brush to paint the color on starting with more color around the edges of the image and moving the color out into the center.

Thank you for visiting
