-The image panel is colored with watercolor pencils and blender pin.
-Ink distressing is done on all but the black edges and the white in the ribbon; it was just to white for the card.
-Tool distressing is done with a Tonic paper perforator.
-My brad mates are done by punching a 1/8” hole in the cardstock, then line up the ˝” circle punch so the hole is centered. I then stamped the two, ink distressed followed by tool distressing.
- Puppies hat is cut out and glued to the card for extra dimension but I first lined up the location using a stamp positioner and stamped the spider onto the image panel. No way was I trying to cut that spider out!
-The background web is a Fiskars embossing plate run thru the Cuttlebug using plumber’s gasket as a filler for space. I also mist the cardstock first.
-The white on the spider web background is Brilliance ink pad lightly rubbed on the embossing. If by chance you get a little on the lower section where it’ll be seen you can erase it if you’re not too heavy with the hand.
-The Canvas and Linen backgrounds are done with the finger walking technique; just ink up the image; wood side down, lay the cardstock on top and walk your figures across the edges so it doesn’t cover completely. (like the yellow pages walking fingers). Then I stamped the same image in the same manner in other direction - tiny spots at a time to give it what I call a messy vintage look!
-The hat is colored with pencils and then a clear gel pen over the colors and part of the hat’s lighter spots.
That’s all I can think of!

that pup is adorable with his hat! cute cute card! thanks for the info on how you used the bg stamp.........have always used my bg stamp upside down and paper on top......but haven't ever tried the *walking fingers* trick. The other thing I do is.......after I put the cardstock on top of the stamp, I put a scrap piece of paper over it before I start rubbing. Thanks Roxie!
