Hello.. Welcome to my blog.. I have a card to share for the challenge over at Aud Sentiments #245

Our theme is ANYTHING GOES + SENTIMENT


We don't have a sponsor for this challenge so we could use anything we wanted. So I always seem to head for flowers and this set is from Simon Says. I colored the image with water color prima paints.

I set it aside to dry. I then took a Simon says thanks die and die cut it 3 times and layered it. I heat embossed the SS sentiment and cut it into a strip. I added them to the card and added this piece to some black card stock. I went over the "thanks" with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush.

What a cutie this Rottweiler is.. I colored him with copics. I used Spectrum Noir sparkle brush on the water. I used My favorite things circle die. I took a Stampin up stencil which has a bunch of circles on it and Ranger ink and did the blue circles in the hopes it would look like bath bubbles.. Well that didn't work so I just kept moving the stencil around and adding different Ranger inks till the white was gone and I felt comfortable with the look. I stamped and heat embossed the Sugar Pea sentiments.
