Play Ball

Play Ball

My card today features a rather playful four-legged friend and I reckon if dogs could say Happy Birthday, this is probably what it would sound like!

 

 

I was inspired by this little dogs pose to make this card so I started off by making a negative space mask using an arch shaped die and then placing a wall stencil over the aperture to blend ink through. After lifting the stencil I removed the mask and replaced the stencil to continue inking the wall with a softer hand to give that spotlight effect. I made my own mask for the grass and used the new Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide ink which is just the perfect shade of green and a great addition to the distress line.

 

 

I coloured and cut the little dog out, although dies are available, and gave him a tennis ball which is made with a small coloured circle. The sentiment is from an older MFT set called Lucky Dog and the add on phrase is computer generated.... sometimes alphabet stamps just wont do the job.

 

Thanks for stopping by, catch you next week :)
