After I came home from the "Y" this morning, I made a card based on the Saturday Sketch Challenge #137. I'm not happy with the picture....I took several and the colour did not come out true on any of them. Actually, the Bazzill cardstock is more red - sort of like Stampin Up's Rose Red colour. In my pic, it looks salmon which doesn't look good with the light pink heart piece.
My new doggy stamp is by Penny Black (#3786F "Crush"), and is a Dalmation with lots of spots. I coloured it much differently to look like my daughter's new puppy - Bella, a dark liver coloured Springer Spaniel. She has a white section across her back all the way from one hip to the other, near her rump that looks like a stripe! LoL. When she looks out of her crate, all you see are her blinking eyes in her dark face. I put Crystal Glaze on the eyes and nose to make them pop a bit. On the stamp, the doggy is holding a heart which I covered with a pink felt one for added dimension. I hope I have captured the likeness in this image, and I'm sure my daughter and son-in-law will know it represents Bella.
