Isn't she just the sweetest?? This would be the perfect Mother's Day card for pet lovers or a pet mom!
I printed the digi out onto Canson watercolor paper. I then squished several different colors onto my craft mat. Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral, Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron, Tattered Rose, Ground Espresso, Lucky Clover and Worn Lipstick. I first sprayed some water onto the inks, dipped my brush in clean water and then picked up the distress inks. I added the first layer to the dog and the girl, dried it with a heat gun and went back to add another layer. I find it easier to add my shading if I do it in layers. Once it was totally dry, I went all around the image with a watered down Hickory Smoke. I waited until it was dry and fussy cut it out.
Now on to the gorgeous background. I fell in love with the Tossed Floral background die from WPlus9. OMG!! It's just so pretty! I used several of the distress inks to color portions of the background. I tried to color the same shape with the same color. Gave it some sense of order without it being too much of a pattern. I set it aside to dry.
I cut out a piece of Narwahl Gray cardstock from Lawn Fawn with a Stitched Rectangle die from MFT Stamps. Now that I had this gorgeous floral background I had to figure out had to add a sentiment. One of my favorite things to do when I don't want to cover up a background is to use heavy vellum. I cut a band of the vellum, treated it with anti-static powder and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink. I sprinkled on Liquid Platinum embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun.
I glued the floral background onto the gray cardstock. I then wrapped the vellum strip around the gray piece and glued both onto the white card base. I used foam tape on the back of the digi stamp and put it in place. As the final touch I glued on a few sparkling clear sequins.
