This weeks challenge at Stampotique is hosted by Tanja, it's her first time hosting so I'm excited for her and she has chosen Monochromatic as the theme. I confess that my heart sank when I saw the theme but in the end I had great fun making this birthday card for a fellow dog walker. This little doggy stamp always makes me thing of Poppy. I also experimented with embossing folders to get the flourish layers, just swishing distress ink on both sides of the folder and then printing, not embossing at all. The whole card was made using Black Soot Distress Ink and I like the layered look I managed to achieve.
The stamps I used are Floral Swirl, Give the dog a bone, Toto, Design Cube, Doilie, Happy Birthday and Oh Tree.
Hoping you can join in the fun this week!
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
