Actually, I was kinda short on stamps for male cards, so these are just perfect.
I also purchased a set of the clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pens, and can definitely recommend them. I maybe eve prefer them over the Wink of Stella ... and they're cheaper!
Anyway, it was a gorgeous bright breezy day, too cold though for anything other than drying the washing, so I had fun getting stampy ....
This is for a friend of my Mum.
Doggy and bone coloured with watercolour pencils; sparkle added to the bone, and clear gloss to his eyes and nose; BG chalked; sparkly number stickers from stash.
- Layout from Freshly Made Sketches #226
- Darnell's NBUS challenge - my doggy stamps are my Never-Before-Used-Schtuff
- Sparkles challenge #77 - something for the males
- ABC challenge - C is for cute
For this one I used up some super-old DP and I also used an old Tim Holtz die - I never really liked using it before as its a big thick die and I could never get my paper to stay straight when cutting. But then I had the brainwave to tape my card to the die instead of to the cutting plate :)
Coloured with watercolour pencils and the BG splattered with some green paint. Doggy popped up on dimensionals.
This one was maybe the simplest of all! I just chalked some of the BG and coloured the bone pressie and that was about it! Simon Says Stamp sentiment die; sparkle added to the bone and clear gloss to his eyes and nose..
