Happy Puppy for JAI #452

Happy Friday and welcome again. As sometimes happens, we have jumped from Summer straight to Winter here in Melbourne this week. Last weekend it was a warm 27 degrees and the last few days we've struggled to make half that temperature. However the trees are looking amazing in their rich red and gold glory so something is going in the right order 😊Hope all those in Auckland for the Stampin Up! On Stage event have a wonderful time.

It's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink this week and Tina has created this fun and fabulous sketch for us all to use in our crafting this week. Our lovely design team have created such a wonderful array of cards to inspire you so I hope that you can take a moment to pop on over and take a peek and join us!

As soon as I saw this sketch I thought of paw prints for the side elements but when it came to put ink to paper that looked like another pet sympathy card....and so I used the bone and "Ruff ruff" images for a happier theme. What dog wouldn't be happy with bones seemingly coming his or her way!😀

To create the background, I first Clear embossed the Ruff Ruff image and then blended some Distress Inks to create the grass and sky scene. A good spray of water later and the background is looking soft and almost airbrushed. The Lab is coloured using Watercolor pencils and cut out with the co-ordinating punch. 

The base colour is Berry Burst, a retiring In- Colour that looks different in the photos due to light issues on cloudy days...

Card Stock: Berry Burst, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Versamark, Water color Pencils
Stamps: Happy Tails 
Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Framelits, Dog Builder punch, Clear and Black Embossing Powders.
Non SU: Bristol Card Stock, Distress Inks: Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink  and see all the gorgeous inspiration from our talented design team and I look forward to see what you will create with this fun and fabulous sketch this week.

Happy stamping until next time,
