Crazy about Crazy Dogs!

I was so excited to pick up my Crazy Dogs stamp set from Debbie's Scrap Shack last week 
& couldn't wait to make a few cards with them. 

I started by stamping my images with Versamark on to watermark paper &
embossed it with superfine black embossing powder.

I coloured my images with Distress Markers and my water pen. I masked off
the image and sprinkled some Color Burst from Ken Oliver. A spritz of water and Bam! Those fantastic colours just pop! Gorgeous, right?
I love these! They create a fantastic background.

A sentiment stamp then adhered to my card base and I have a a quick & easy card!

Using the exact same techniques, I made 5 more cards.

Some I made with certain people in mind - just waiting for the perfect occasion. 

This stamp reminds me of my dog, Dakota. So I am sure I will use it the most.

This card explains my life everyday!

  7. Well these are brilliant. Great stamps but the colouring in is simply fantastic. I wish I was so talented as this. I've been a stamper for about 3 months now and often leave them uncoloured as I don't get the colours working properly lol. Thankyou for the inspiration x

  8. These cards are wonderful and I love the fact that they're easy! I'm curious to know what stamp company made the stamp, "We've been through a lot together...and most of it was your fault!"?
