I made this birthday card for my youngest and I’m hoping that she thinks that the middle dog looks like Buddy.
I stamped some of the dogs onto post it notes so that I could cut them out and make masks. I love this technique as it so simple to do. If you don’t know what mean by this it’s when you stamp an image in the foreground and then you cover it with a “mask” which is the same stamp which you overlay while you stamp over the top of this, then you remove the mask and the second stamp looks like its behind the first. It allows you to put things behind other things rather than stamping over the top or having to put things next to each other. It’s a good technique when you want to group things like these dogs. Once I’d stamped them all I then water coloured the images with a water brush and distress inks which I picked up from my mat. After colouring the dogs I stamped the “doggone it” sentiment and also a mask for this too. I put the mask over the sentiment and inked around the edge of the card to lightly tint the background leaving the sentiment white so it would pop.
I hope you like the dogs!
