Best Friend

My fifteen year old nephew had a birthday earlier this month & this is the card I made for him. The breed of dog on the card is a Cairn Terrier & this is same breed as his dog. This is also the same kind of dog that I have. Both our dogs are a light tan color, thus the choice of ink color- creamy caramel.

I stamped the background with
the 'ruff', the 'bark', and the paw & bone acrylic stamps from Inkadinkado's dog set using creamy caramel. Then using the color spritzer tool and my chocolate chip marker, I misted ink over the craft card stock. That look is especially great for guy cards as it adds color and dimension without adding 'girly' embellishments.

Below is a picture of my little dog, Karlee.
Have a great day!
