Wishing you Sunshine & Puppies

Hello!!!  It's a beautiful evening here in Southern Iowa!!  And the weekend has been wonderful!!  My daughter is here this weekend and we spent much of yesterday arting (as we like to put it).  I put this card together for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Little Critters.  Besides thinking of the challenge, I also needed a birthday card for my step-daughter and she likes dogs.  All the kids were here today and we celebrated her birthday - she likes the card.

For the background I started with Distress Mixed Media Heavy Cardstock, sprayed on Archivals (Wendy Vecchi's technique of mixing Archival Reinker with Rubbing Alcohol in a Mister bottle), dried it, stamped some PaperArtsy Sara Naumann images using Archival Ink, splattered on white paint, made sure everything was dry and then put Wendy's Gold Embossing Paste through a stencil (Deco Art, Andy Skinner).  The dog is one of Tim's crazy dogs, colored with Distress - I die cut an extra dog from white cardstock and layered them together offsetting them just a bit to give a highlight and help the dog to pop from the busy background.  The words are from a brand new Quietfire Design stamp set (you can find it HERE) - isn't it Fabulous!!!!
