Hello, I just love this dog and cat stamp set by Avery Elle. I stamped one of the dogs twice so I could have three dogs, six bunches of flowers, three party hats and four balls. I stamped them all in archival jet black ink onto Bristol Smooth card so I could use the clean colour real brush markers to colour them in. The colours I used will be shown in the list of items below. I then die cut all the pieces out with the co-ordinating dies.
I trimmed two pieces of watercolour card to 11cm x 14cm – from one piece I die cut two grassy borders using the Grassy Hillside Border Die by Lawn Fawn, one higher than the other.
For the panels I am using watercolour card that has some texture so I used my Precision Stamp Positioner to stamp the sentiments ‘Hot Diggity Dog’ and ‘Let’s Paw-ty!’.
I placed the card into the corner, placed the stamp where I wanted it, closed the lid to pick it up, inked the stamp with archival jet black ink and closed the lid to stamp the sentiments.
On the grassy hillside borders I ink blended Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress inks. For the top piece of the card I ink blended Tumbled Glass with a little Blue Print Sketch to create a ‘sky’ effect. I sprayed clean water onto these three panels with my distress sprayer. Let the water sit for approx. 20-30 seconds then blotted dry with a paper towel.
I adhered the sky piece with stix2 tape runner to the top of a folding card base, one grass panel flat and the front grass panel with foam tape. Then I placed the dogs onto the card.
I used the tape runner adhesive on the two grey dogs and foam tape on the tan dog. Hats were adhered to the dogs heads. I placed the flowers and balls around to finish the scene. For the finishing touch on the dogs I added a dot of black glaze pen to ‘pop’ their eyes.
The supplies I used to create this card are listed and linked below.
