Hello and welcome to my Blog!
I made this little birthday card for my BIL's birthday - he loves dogs so it wasn't a hard choice to pick a stamp with a Penny Black dog on it! I only bought this cute little stamp the other day and couldn't wait to ink it up - it's so adorable - and I love how their little tails are furiously wagging.
I stamped the image onto Watercolour paper and watercoloured it with acrylic paints. The main image panel and sentiment are up on mounts (dimensionals), The bone is a button and the designer paper is digital.
The sentiment stamp originally had a present in the centre, but I masked it out so I could put the paw pad button there instead.
I am popping this card into the Splitcoaststampers 'Free for All' F4A17 Challenge of 'Man's Best Friend' eg: dog, cats, fish, reptiles etc.
Plus I am also entering the card into the 'Stampin' for the Weekend' Challenge 45 of 'Anything Goes' which can be anything as long as it has a stamped or digi image on it. Makes it a nice and easy challenge :-)
Thanks again for stopping by! Back in a few days with another card.
