I suddenly remembered this morning that it was our Great Nephew's Birthday tomorrow and I hadn't made him a card yet, and with it being Sunday it's a new challenge over at Pixie's Snippets Playground. So with both of these things in mind I started rummaging in my scraps box. I found lots of small (but not too small) pieces of white card, plus a square piece that I had stamped something on and then abandoned it. Then I remembered that the new challenge over on the Allsorts Challenge blog was Dogs and/or Cats, and sitting in my cupboard were both the cats and dogs sets of stamps from Tim Holtz. As I have never inked any of these stamps I thought it was time to remedy this. The reason that I picked this dog over any of the others and the cats, is the fact that yesterday afternoon my sister turned up with her dog. I had just started chopping up some meat ready for dinner and this was the look that Luka (the dog) gave me thinking that I might throw a piece his way. I created an inky background using distress inks and then over stamped around the edges with a star swirl stamp from Stamping Up and an ink pad with luminous ink however it did not show up in the photo very well. I stamped the dog on a smaller piece of card and then coloured him with Aqua pens before cutting him out with the matching die.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
