"Happy Valentines Day" - Craft Lounge

The stamps I used on this card are from "our craft lounge"....I love that dancing puppy!!...The name of this stamp set is called..."Pat the Dog" These are really nice stamps...they are clear and stamp Beautifully. Included in the stamp set is little binder page to store your stamps on ...and this page has colored pictures of the stamps on it. This all makes it really easy to color and store these stamps.

Be sure to check them out... "Our Craft Lounge" They have an Amazing amount Wonderful and Fun stamps and sets....including more new ones that just came out!!!

I used the recent Fabulous SC215 sketch for the layout...and cut around the dog, clouds and sentiment TLC207 (cut it out)...So Fun!! This card also qualifies for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge #47...which is "Music and Dance"

The images are colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's to shade. Acrylic white paint for accents.

Pat, clouds, sentiment and the whole nestie panel is popped up.

I stamped the censored sign ...masked it...and stamped over with the fire hydrant.

The background is simply a dry brush of bashful blue ink and olive green ink......a few grassy details added with a marker. You can see my background tutorial right here

The clouds have shimmerz paint on them....this is the first time I have used this product..very nice!!

Paper: GP white, treasures cs, basic grey, dcwv, mme

Ink: versafine black, bashful blue, olive green

Accessories: ribbon, charm, shimmerz, cord, labels two, threading water punch, stitching

Remember to keep hopping to see the new High Hopes Release Sneak Peeks......The New Release stamps should be on the High Hopes site....Sunday morning!!

Thanks for looking!! ....and for your lovely comments!! Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!!!
