furry friends

  • Avery Elle - 'furry friends' stamp set
  • Lawn fawn dies - stitched scalloped borders
  • Stampin up! making spirits bright stamp set
  • Tim Holtz distress ink pads - salty ocean, tumbled glass, broken china
  • copics - e31, e35, e37
  • memento 'tuxedo black' ink pad
  • sekura clear glaze pen
  • memento black brush tip pen
  • 6x4 white card blank and cardstock

To begin, I cut a matt to fit my card blank. I created an ombre effect background on this matt. First I stamped paws working from the bottom upwards with salty ocean at the base, then 2nd generation salty ocean in the centre and tumbled glass at the top. I then inked the matt with the tumbled glass with some broken china blended in at the very bottom. I die cut the bottom with a scalloped edge die and stuck this to my card. I then stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner of the card blank. For the focal image, I stamped the dog, coloured him with copics and fussy cut him out. I then used a memento black brush tip pen to colour the white cardstock edge. I added him to the card using foam and glazed his nose to complete the card.
