Puppy's new Friend

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start. The sun is out here today which makes me very happy :-)

I have a new card to share today using one of the new stamps from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong collection - Puppy's new Friend. It's been stamped onto copic xpress blending card using memento tuxedo black ink, then colored using copic markers. 


My sketch was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch, but I flipped it.

Blue designer paper is from MME. The kraft card stock was stamped with an old SU stamp from the set Looks Like Spring and some whimsy flourishes from the set Lavish Flourishes to create a little background on it. Sentiment is from a new Clear Photopolymer stamp set by Whimsy Simple Sentiments. I really love these new clear stamps from Whimsy, awesome quality, and I really like that you can read the words of the stamps exactly before stamping it. Somehow makes me wish all stamps that I have were photopolymer :-)

I embellished with some twine, a button and maybe a little too much glitter.


I am playing along in a few challenges:
Cutie Pie Challenge -  Cute with Dies & Punches 
MarkerPOP Challenge -  Spring
 Squigglefly -  Bright Spring Colors
Catered Crop - Put A Bird On It
  Challenges 4 Everybody - anything goes
The Squirrel & The Fox -  All Creatures Great & Small
Mojo Monday - sketch (I flipped it and only used one circle instead of 3)

  

Thanks for stopping by,
have a great day!
