Well, I hope you all in my neck of the woods are succeding at staying cool. We have been having a terrible heat spell, which is keeping my butt in the house!! Feel bad for my poor husband, he is on vacation and we have not been able to do much, it seems when he is on vacation there is some kind of Weather problem either it rains all week or now we have almost 100 degree weather the whole time.
I have been keeping busy, trying to sort through my many stamps and organize myself, I have been able to make two cards which I will post here, they were easy enough to do.
The first card I created around the stamp, I just love this Dog stamp, it is from Stamps by Judith, and as I love dogs and have a now 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback "Mirage", whom is my constant companion. Anyway, stamped the image and cut out and colored with my copic markers, 3D'd him or her with a 3d tape dot and mounted on a 2 inch punched out circle colored with Tim Holtz Distress inks. I also 3D'd that and put a bunch of mounting tape under it. On my pup I also used glossy accents on the tongue and on his or her nose.
The background I had two different paw print stamps and I just stamped all over a piece of white card stock with them in different color brown inks, I then went around the edge with Vintage Photo distress ink just to tone down the white a bit. When I was happy with the look, I mounted it all together using layers of colored bazzil cardstock. Left it generic for now until I know what other sentiments I would like to add.
Will post my other creation a bit later.
My dear Mirage is letting me know that she is being negelected again for this darn machine!! (the computer)
So stay cool, and have a good weekend, and thanks for stopping by.
