This month's Twofer challenge is all about Pets, so I couldn't resist playing along with these two cards.
My first card was inspired by the current challenge at The Library Challenge - 101 Dalmatians.
I used one of my new stamp sets, Hashtag Walkies, and set to work with a black paint pen to create two faux-dalmatian coats. Then I masked the images while I sponged the background and stencilled the sentiment.
I also made a Christmas card, and found two new-to-me challenges to enter:
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Feature A Creature and
The Merry Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes + Christmas
The background was in my stash from my attempts at a Jennifer McGuire technique using alcohol inks, which I won't be trying again! But waste not, want not. I stamped the image onto the background, then again onto cartridge paper. I used Distress Oxide re-inkers two watercolour the images, then fussy cut them and stuck them into place. The Season's Greetings sentiment is from Layered Holly.
