Happy Tuesday..almost Wednesday! Sorry about my random postings these days. That is just the way it is in the Summer. We were away camping from Friday to Sunday and I am catching up with the laundry, groceries as well as running around with the kids. We had a fantastic time and the boys loved every minute of it…except for the mosquitos…they were just nasty.
My card today is for the August Challenge over at Stamp & Create. The theme is critters and gave me the opportunity to ink this sweet stamp up. Had a lot of fun creating the fur on the little puppy and will be giving a course on how to do this in September at Scrapbook Centrale. It is one of the techniques I have been asked a lot about
The image I used is a Stampavie image from the Laurence collection called: A Warm Welcome. I colored it up with Copic Markers to match the colors in the patterned paper from Echo Park's For the Record paper pad. I love the happy colors and pretty patterns in this pad. So fun!
I added a sky background by using a cloud template and my Copic ABS and then sponged in some grass with Jenni Bowlin ink in Stick Candy. and then did some paper piercing around the edges for a little more interest. I machine stitched the papers and created the little sentiment tag by using vellum and a PTI die and stamp.
There is a 25$ gift certificate as a prize for the winner of this challenge and you can find out more details and how to enter ~here~.
