Warm Hello Penny Black
Little did I know, that this dog right now represents my life. I find myself babysitting a not-potty trained 5 month old dachshund for a friend, along with Sloopy. So this mischievious little Penny Black dog represents what I'm experiencing in my real life...times 2! I don't think next Monday at 6:00 can get here quick enough.
Anyway, I'm pleased with this card, though I did bend the rules and not use any embellishments. I just didn't feel it needed any. I find that holds true with many larger images. The stamp is from Penny Black and it is called "Naughty or Nice?" and on the actual wood-mounted stamp, the colors are with red and green. I wanted to make this a winter type card, not a holiday card. I think I pulled it off by just using shades of blue.
Stamped on Sterling Matte Coat from Arvey's, using Marvy Dye ink. Colored with Copics. The sentiment is from an acrylic set from Hero Arts. White Pen-Touch pen used for the dots along the blue.
