Anna-Karin made a double layout this week, in memory of a very sweet dog. She used Hero Arts Rings Bold Prints stamp for the background, before painting with watercolors. There are also a bunch of Simon Says Stamp die cuts, such as from the Missing You set.
Barbara could not resist the charm of this beautiful cat from HIPSTER set by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous and created a card for a friend! Stone and Splatters are two stencils she used for her background and a rainbow of Distress inks pads to color this work!
Cathie created a layout featuring her family’s dog, Nilla. To create the background for the layout she used the Simon Says Stamp Ring Cluster stencil and Ranger Crazing Collage Medium along with Distress Sprays and Crayons.
Emma doesn’t have any pets of her own but has adopted this adorable crazy dog for this challenge. She coloured him with Distress Marker Pens before putting him in pride of place on a background created using Sunset Beach and Golden Sands Infusions from PaperArtsy.
Kath made a birthday treat bag for a friend’s dog using Tim Holtz Dapper Stash Pad,Stampers Anonymous Crazy Dogs,Ring Frame Die and added a sentiment from the Coffee & Tea stamp set that came with the February Card Kit
Macarena made a thankful card for a vet using Crazy Dogs stamps and dies and sitting the dog on a mess of Tattered Leaves and made this soft background with Simon Says Stamp Grid Background stamp and White Embossing Powder.
Sandra doesn’t have pets of her own because she isn’t home that much to spend the time needed with them. But she would love to have this Crazy Dog if she could. This interesting dark background is made with Grit-Paste, Infusions and Opal Magic Blue-Gold Paint.
