In a happy confluence of events, I wanted to make a valentine with a dog on it, and there seem to be a number of pet/dog-related challenges out there in cardmaking land! Here's my card:
So far, this is my favourite of the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs. He's stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with Zigs. For the background, I mixed embossing paste with a drop of red reinker and applied it through a stencil. After that was dry, I used watercolour powder for the background. Hey! Now I know that dye ink will still run with water even after it's mixed with embossing paste and left to dry overnight! I decided I could live with it since it somewhat camouflaged the way the embossing paste splooched under the stencil in a couple of places. Wouldn't "wet, slobbery kisses" be the perfect sentiment for this? Alas, I don't have that, so this one had to make do. Finally, I bordered the main panel with some textured black cardstock and pawprint washi tape.
Challenges I'm entering: Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: Pets Corner; Just Us Girls: Dogs; and Addicted to CAS: Pets (borderline on the CAS, I know, but with one main image and sentiment and not too many layers, I'll risk it).
