The Textured Snarky Stampers

It's a Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Saturday, and our newest challenge to you is T is for Texture! I added two kinds of texture and a little bit of snark: 

Look at the texture on those hearts! I used a new-to-me product, Nuvo expanding mousse. After adding some woodgrain texture to my panel, I spread a thick layer through a stencil, added a dusting of gold embossing powder to help keep them shiny, and then heated the whole mixture with my heat gun. It bubbles up and adds great dimension. I even added a little bit to the pup's ID tag. To my panel, I added my mini crazy dog - popped up, he's on about the same level as the hearts! - and the sentiment. I've flipped - and taken a few liberties with - the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm also adding my card to the current Furbabies challenge at Shopping Our Stash

My sisters are as talented with texture as they are with snark! We also have a returning Queen and guest designer, Tristan. Grab your favourite texturing technique and join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white, Stampin' Up smoky slate & scrap green cardstock, Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Mini Crazy Cats & Dogs stamp & die, Technique Tuesday You Aren't Normal stamp, MFT extreme black & Versafine onyx black ink, Wow clear gloss & pirate's gold embossing powder, Copic markers, Heidi Swapp confetti stencil, Nuvo Tuscan gold expanding mousse, PTI woodgrain impression plate, MFT stitched rounded rectangle die, foam tape

Pin It Now!

This is so cute. Love those glittery textured hearts, and that snarky sentiment is perfect for your crazy dog. I think I have that set too, and I should really bring him out to play with one of my snarky sentiment sets.

Such a fun card! Like the effect with the expanding mousse - a new product to me too, Jo x

First time I've heard of this expanding mousse, but it looks like a lot of fun. You've certainly showcased it amazingly! Awesome card....and I'm not saying that because there's a dog and not a cat on it. LOL!

Also, thanks for linking up at Shopping Our Stash!

What a great card, that expanding mousse is different and you showcased it fabulously. Great take on the sketch. Nice to give dogs a bit of fame.
