Going to the dogs

Good Saturday morning! I have several Stamping Bella images that I’ve purchased over the last few months but never seemed to have inked up…and with a few more that arrived yesterday I thought I’d get going on them. Today I have Dogwalkabella to share.

This image is stamped on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. It’s colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spirits). This is the first time I am also breaking out my Basic Grey Origins paper….I love it! I created this fun flower from a tutorial I saw on Dawn McVey’s blog. I had seen others using them and I really love them so I finally made one myself. The flower was so big and bold that I thought adding ribbon or a bow might be too much. I also didn’t have a sentiment handy for this, so I am leaving it blank for now-when I have a need to use this card I will add it then.

I hope everyone in the north is keeping warm today! It was 16 degrees as I stood at the bus stop with my 6 year old yesterday! The high reached 22 degrees but was much less with the wind chill factor-yikes! This morning I am sitting on the couch in front of the fire keeping cozy! I am soooo ready for spring!
