Wednesday, 21 January 2015
Can you believe this is the third wednesday of 2015?!? I can't believe we are already well into January however I am always reminded when I present one of my DT cards as it shows how time flys...
This month we are showcasing the new cat and Dog range of stamps from Creative Expressions and I even surprised myself as to how much I enjoyed colouring these images!
For todays card I chose the Toby single stamp along with the Paw Print Lattice background stamp.
I started by stamping Toby onto Milk foundation card with black archival ink. I then coloured him in using Scattered saw distress pen colouring around the edges and pulling the colour into the image using a wet paintbrush. I highlighted him, and the ball, using Antique linen distress pen and shaded round the card using scattered stars and cut n dry foam. It cut the rectangle I used the second largest die in the Spellbinders matting basics B set.
To finish the card I added the background onto a 21 x 21 cm card made from layers of the milk and sand onto which I randomly stamped the background using scattered straw distress ink. I added a messy bow and a couple of strips of ribbon and the Toby image over the top to balance the card.
Finally I added one of the new Dazzler settings and a black dazzler in the centre.
