Dog Sympathy card
Being the animal lover that I am, it breaks my heart when I learn of family and friends who have lost a beloved pet. Our pets become part of the family and when one has to be put down or dies it really breaks the heart.
This stamp is one of the new sets from the Occasions mini catalog from Stampin'Up!. The set is called "For Father" and this puppy with the shoe stamp is one of four stamps from this set. The "with sympathy" sentiment is from Anna Griffin.
The puppy and shoe are stamped on watercolor paper with Versafine Black Onyx ink and embossed with clear embossing powder so that when I watercolor the ink doesn't run. I watercolored the image using Tombow markers.
I used my cuttlebug to emboss the swiss dots background on the yellow cardstock and then my Nestibilities circle and scalloped circle to cut the image out.
The ribbon and paw print brad were in my stash and I don't remember who makes them.
For the inside sentiment sentiment reads:
My photos are pretty dark. It is SNOWING outside right now and it is another cold, gloomy day so I didn't get very sharp or bright snaps of this card.
Thanks for stopping by!
