So Pawesome

Recently, Sally the Lab went for her final Post Op X-rays after knee surgery -  the same day the Aus Post van arrived with these gorgeous stamps! So I didn't have much time to put this together before heading off to collect her so it is a rather simple card - but still an opportunity to experiment with some Copics!

These last couple of years we have been needing to visit the vet and specialist quite a lot and so I have been on the lookout for new stamps to use for "thank you's" :-)
This adorable one is called Cat And Dog Pawsome from Simon Says Stamps and comes with matching framelits to cut the dog, cat and part of the greeting. So I used some Copics to colour him (or her:-) and then cut her out. The "pawesome" is also die cut from some black glimmer card although it is a little hard to see the sparkle.
And the cute little paw prints at the bottom is a single stamp, part of Dog Sayings from Stampendous - so quick and easy to use as all are photopolymer.

Whilst really clean, some stitched squares add a little interest and  texture and there is some Cherry Cobbler striped twine peeking out from behind the first layer too. And to continue the red colour scheme,  the rhinestone was coloured with a Copic marker for a simple touch of bling :-)
Quick, easy and just ready by the time Sally was to come home - perfect!
