Puppy Love

I am over due in posting a dog card, to be fair to all our furry friends. Jen del Muro hosted the TCP Tuesday Challenge this week. The challenge is to use Red, Pink, Dark Gray and Black. Perfect for another Valentine card. I stamped Poochie and airbrushed around him, then used a Copic marker and White Gel Pen to create my little border on the Nesties. I used SU's slot punch to add ribbon thru the edges. On the red panel I stamped TCP's Trio of Snowflakes just to add a little extra. I stamped the sentiment in black and then shadowed the letters with a red fine tip marker. A newly acquired Martha punch along the bottom edge, I think I am addicted to her punches. I used some black rainbow tape above and below the sentiment to help it stand out. The small scallop heart punch is also by Martha, I trimmed a smaller heart from pink to pop and I added some glitter glue and Crystal Lacquer for sparkle. The Heart Shaped Valentine that Poochie is holding - I added a touch of glitter and Crystal Lacquer to help it be more of a focal point. A little Black Spica Pen on Poochie for sparkle! Click on the close up pics to see the details. Finished card size is an A2.

  1. Cute card! I love the way you have the red ribbon puffed on either side of the dog panel, over the flat pink ribbon. I'm impressed by the pink wash of airbrushing! I can't wait to get some nesties. I am addicted to this same arches border punch, and I have been going crazy with my Bow-Easy!

  2. You never cease to amaze me on how you come up wit all these different ways to use ribbon to accent your card! Wonderful...and that bow is perfect...dang I struggle with bows!
