It's Not All Black and White

What a Cutie!

This Hambo dog sure makes me smile, so I paired him up with a great sentiment by Verve Visual, "sending you smiles". I stamped him with black Versafine on Stampin' Up's watercolor paper and colored with classic inks and an aquapainter.

NOTE: Be sure to give your stamped images some "ground", so they're not floating around in mid-air.

After it was dry, I added the chocolate chip sentiment. I put Star Dust Stickles over the three spots on the dog's collar, just cause he's so special.




I USED:


Stamps: Thoughtful Phrases by Verve Visual and dog by Hambo stamps


Paper: Stampin Up's very vanilla, chocolate chip, close to cocoa and watercolor paper, EK Success mini dots and K&Co. polka dots


Ink: black Versafine; SU! chocolate chip, close to cocoa, certainly celery, mellow moss, real red, brocade blue, soft sky


Other: Marvy giga scalloped and mega oval punches, SU! photo corner punch, SU! celery grosgrain, Lasting Impressions antique brads, aquapainter, Star Dust Stickles
