A Perfect Companion

Today I used this cute little doggie stamp that emphasizes how many dog (or cat) owners feel about their pets.  Since I haven't had a pet for over 45 years, I am unable to empathize with pet owners but I see how many of my friends and family feel about their pets.  

I gave white card stock a few quick spritzes  of Art Anthology Coloration sprays for the "ground" and the "sky."  Then I stamped Technique Junkie Blustery Day  I used a medium green ink over all, then I went back with a medium brown marker and went over the tree trunks. I used an embossing buddy to prepare my card stock for heating embossing. I stamped Technique Junkie Perfect Companions in Versafine black ink and used detail black embossing powder over all, shaking off the excess, and using my heat gun to heat emboss the powder.  

Wrapping some ribbon around the card base and using a brad to wrap around some of the ribbon finishes off the card.

Have an inky day!

Beautiful card, to be sure. The background stamp was a perfect choice and the colors you used were a true compliment to the art. I really need to get that stamp. TFS

Sweet as pie card, Judy. But, do you know how many of your cards I have saved in my Wrapped Ribbon folder? Several and this one joins them. It's a technique in my world - Yay! xoxo
