Hello everyone - I was so happy when I got my new Stampavie stamps in the mail last week. I have had them on pre-order since July!! It was worth the wait though - I just love them - this is one of my new Stampavie Stamps (Laurence Design). If you follow my blog you would know that I love dogs and any type of "cute" doggie stamps. This one was no exception. I colored these two dogs with my copic markers - I had initially wanted them more white than gray but I started off with too dark of a gray and by the time I faded to the lightest gray I realized that these two doggies were not going to be white anymore. I added a bit of W5 to the gray to soften the tone somewhat. I colored this image at crop night last night at our local scrapbooking store and then put away my copics so again I do not have a list of colors - sorry. I used my sizzix die cuts for the Joy sentiment and the holly leaves. I added a MS garland border on the bottom and glued some bright red polka dot ribbon on top. I layered some dp from my paper stash and added a few red brads in the corners. I used my white gel pen for highlights and my fine black felt pen for some faux stitching. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. The weekend is going by fast - I managed to get a few things done that I wanted today so that makes me feel good. I am looking forward to seeing all the kids in their costumes tomorrow night - we get about 60 kids or so every year and then we watch the fireworks from our house - we are overlooking the fire hall where they have the firework display so we always enjoy that. Happy Halloween to all!!
