Puppy Dreams


I wish I had a tiny bone stamp or brad I could have added to his dream bubble, but I still thought it was pretty cute.

This is for Challenge 4 - Get Punchy at A*Muse*a*Palooza, to use your punches with A Muse stamps. I used my giga scalloped square. I stamped Patch in Timber Brown StazOn on whisper white. Then used an aquapainter to brush bashful blue and sage shadow around him. Whisper White doesn't like to get wet, so I set in under something (my box of prismacolor pencils) to lay flat while drying. I stamped "dream" from SU Good Times in chocolate chip, cut it out with Provocraft small scalloped scissors, and ran my chocolate chip marker along the edges. After the square was dry, I drew the tiny circles from Patch to his dream bubble and adhered the bubble. Then, I pressed the whole thing into my Versamark pad and embossed with clear ep. It intensified the colors just a little, made it a bit sturdier, and of course shiny. I layered all my paper together and added the bow (with mini glue dot) and eyelets.

The goods:
Stamps: A Muse Patch, SU! Good Times
Ink: timber brown stazon, chocolate chip, sage shadow, bashful blue
Paper: whisper white, sage shadow, Paper Salon Harmony: stripe, K & Co. brown and green polka dots
Other: SU! white eyelets, Martha Stewart ribbon, marvy giga scalloped square, provocraft small scallop scissors, clear ep, aquapainter
