Today I created a card for a work mate, for her friend’s birthday. As usual I had heaps of ideas going around in my head! I don’t make a lot of male themed cards, but this one was fun as I got out my Tim Holtz Cray Dogs stamps and dies. These are such fun sets and I also have the Birds, Cats and Accessory stamps. Yep, I am a stamp addict!
I used Stampin’ Up!® retired card stock and DSP for this card. I also used Gorgeous Grunge SU stamp set for the background. This is one of my fave current sets as it can be used for lots of projects. The very cute dog I stamped in Black Memento Ink, on special cs for alcohol pens. I then coloured it using my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I love colouring images and I am no professional at it. I cut him out using the matching Framelit and my Ebosser. I did the same technique for the balloons. I just drew the balloon strings freehand. The sentiment is from the My Favourite Things Label stamp set.
I really enjoyed playing with my stamp and inks today and I really need to clean up my messy desk lol!
I hope you have enjoyed my post and thanks for popping in 🙂
