I made this little birthday card for my BIL's birthday - he loves dogs and has 2 Border Collies so it wasn't a hard choice to pick a stamp with a Penny Black dog on it! I only bought this cute little stamp the other day and couldn't wait to ink it up - it's so adorable - and I love how their little tails are furiously wagging. I also LOVE making cards with dogs on them - makes it easy for those difficult "man cards"!!
I stamped the image onto 140lb Watercolour paper and watercoloured it with JoSonya acrylic paints/paintbrushes. The main image panel and sentiment are up on mounts (dimensionals), The bone is a button and the designer paper is digital.
The sentiment stamp originally had a present in the centre, but I masked it out so I could put the paw pad button there instead. BTW, the bone & pawpad buttons are by: Shelly's buttons & more 'Tiny Dogs'.
