This week’s Bloggers Challenge was to use an animal…and I’m kind of cheating by using a card I made last week. My back has really been bothering me this week, and I’m barely shuffling around…and forget about bending or stooping!
Do you ever wonder why a dog doesn’t like it if you blow in his face, but he will hang his head out the car window?
I love how this turned out. My daughter took me to my favorite brick and mortar scrapbook store, the Scrap Nook, in Fargo last week, and I picked up some supplies, including some beautiful paper. I’m not sure what type of patterned paper this black and copper is, but it’s "fibery" and when torn is almost like fabric. Is it mulberry? I don’t know since I’ve never actually touched any.
Stamps: Adventure set from Artistic Outpost
Paper: rust and black card stock from Colormates (?), Black and copper patterned textured paper (unknown)
Ink: Ranger Clear Embossing ink, Ranger Black Archival ink
Supplies: sponge for aging (Ranger Black Archival was used), copper brads, black embossing powder, heat gun
I stamped the dog image with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. I lightly sponged the edges and "pounced" the image with Black Archival ink. The black and copper patterned paper was torn.
I love how this turned out! I love it when I start out with just a wee idea of what I want and then get carried away by the creative process.
