Ooops, missed a few days!

Slightly later than planned, a picture of Pepper and another card. She has gone to live with a lovely couple who already have 2 dogs, the 3 year old will now have a playmate and leave the 14 year old alone! The house seems very quiet without her - well, as quiet as it gets with 2 boys running around!

And on to the card.
The olive branch has been stamped in black Stazon on watercolour paper and coloured using a watercolour pen and inks. The edges of the panel have been sponged using olive ink to create a softer look. The panel underneath has been created the same way, with the sentiment stamped on black Stazon and the panel edges sponged with olive. Four silver brads have also been added. Both panels have been matted onto eggplant cardstock, and the branch layer has been attached to the base using dimensionals. The olive card base has been stamped using the leafy frond in olive ink.

Products used (all Stampin’ Up!):
  • Stamps – Touch of Nature
  • Ink – black Stazon, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant
  • Cardstock – watercolour paper (non-SU), Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant
  • Other – silver brads

I'm such a bad blogger! Why is this time of year so frantic? End of school activities, a holiday and being short-staffed at work results in no tome to blog - oh, and a lost camera. I found the camera so hoping the weather will be reasonable enough tomorrow to get some photos taken (the cards are made, honest!) We've got a dog show first, with someone coming to see our foster dog. I think they'll fall in love with her, she is SO pretty - will try to post a picture of Pepper too tomorrow. Our dog will certainly miss her if she goes - she doesn't give him a minute's peace!!! See you tomorrow, hopefully.
