Hello friends old and new!
Firstly, thank you all so much for all the lovely wishes after my announcement yesterday – it really did make my day to read them and I am hugely grateful for your support and kindness.
I am back today with another card for the Clearly Besotted March release countdown. Today I am using another of the smaller sets from the release. Isn’t this little sausage dog just adorable? As soon as I saw this set I knew I had to have him on an action wobble!
I began by stamping the dog onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and colouring with Copics (markers listed below). I then fussy cut him but there are coordinating dies available for this set if you don’t like to cut 🙂
Next I took a 4.5″ square piece of Neenah cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine using the trees die from the Scene It die collection. I put the die-cut panel into my MISTI and stamped the trees using Memento Tuxedo Black and then the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink (my go-to ink for sentiments, it’s so very crisp). I coloured the trees with Copics.
Next I took a 4.5″ white base card and ink blended the top section with distress inks to create a bright and fun sunset type background. I then adhered my tree panel onto the base using foam tape to give it some dimension.
Lastly I popped an action wobble onto the back of the sausage dog and adhered it down. I stamped the little wobble marks to finish the card off. It’s so fun to make him bounce around!
Thank you so much for joining me again today. I will be back tomorrow with another card to celebrate the new release. In the meantime, do hop over to the awesome Design Team members Stephanie, Michelle, Keren and also to the super sweet and talented Rubeena who is guest designing for Clearly Besotted this month and see what they have created – it is sure to be inspiring!
