Today's card is for my brother who just had to put down his yellow lab, Bailey, last week. My heart just aches for him and his family. Our dogs are truly the best friend we will have. They are always happy when they see you ... no matter if you're gone 5 minutes, 5 hours or 5 days.
I used the Pals Paper Arts sketch this week for my starting point.
I stayed pretty true to the sketch, except for the banner at the bottom. I could not get it to look right on my card. I fell back on 'ole faithful ... punches! Here is my finished product ...
Stamps: Fabulous Phrases, Will & Way (from H.L.)
Paper: More Mustard, Black, Vanilla, Cajun Craze
DSP: Cajun Craze
Ink: Memento Black, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Copics, Bic marker, Spellbinders rectangle dies, word window and modern label punch, sponge daubers, dimensionals
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.
- The vanilla panel was sponged with Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue to make a sky and grass.
- I added rhinestones, which I colored black, on the modern label before I sent it off. Added a nice touch.
I spent last week having a great time with Michael while he was home for his Spring Break. No stamping for me and I didn't even miss it. Though, I totally enjoyed my craft room today! :)
Have a great day,
