Today I am sharing a card I had a lot of fun creating. It was for my son for his birthday.
I created these two dogs to kind of look like our dogs. An artistic version… Here they are. Lucy is the black and white dog and Aspen is the brown and black dog.
For the background I used some Distress Oxide ink and did some smooshing on the craft mat. Then I did some second generation stamping of the numbers in the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz set Faded Type. I went over two stencils with Hero Arts Unicorn ink which you can barely see. Like I am looking at and can barely see it. I heat embossed the bones using Broken China Glaze embossing powder.
For the dogs I created two panels with Distress ink smooshing and tapping. For the black dog (Lucy) I ended up making another panel and strategically stamped so she would have a white chest. I heat embossed each dog using black embossing powder so that the detail would show up. I hand cut them out. Creating black dogs, which I have done several times, is tricky because you can lose the detail. I was super happy how they turned out.
The tennis ball stamp from the set had to be a part of it since the Lucy would play fetch with her ball 24/7 if you kept throwing it for her. I created the ball by first stamping it. Then I hand cut it out and put some colored grit paste on it to make it look fuzzy. I drew the lines back on.
The sentiment is stamped.
