Hello - Sorry you're having a ruff day!

 Hello everyone!

I'm back with another card.

I love this set from My Favorite Things.  We are both dog and cat lovers so when these sets came out I just have to have them.  But I had to pace myself so I picked up the "You make my tail wag" that I picked up from Butterfly Reflections Ink first, then I'll pick up the kitty one in my next haul.

I started out with some 110# white card stock and I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 dies but instead of the squares,  I used a circle die from SSS as I wanted to have the stitching around the negative part as well.  So I went ahead and cut those out and then I used the Lawn Fawn Interlocking backdrops stamps and with the chevrons in with Fog ink for some interest.

I then took the small Hello die and cut that out of grey card stock about four times to give it some dimension and glued that one with Tombow Mono and let it hang off the circle just a bit.

I cut and stamped the puppy and coloured him with my copics, E23 & E25 and used a bit of C1 to colour in the white parts along with N4, N6 & N8 for his nose.   I took a piece of Amarican Crafts black twine, Marshmallow sequins and black enamel dots along with some black shimmer mist from Tattered Angel.

On the inside I added the rest of the puppy and grounded him with some C3 and 0.  I have to say that I am not great at grounding my images, but I know I'll get is with a bit more practice.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black ink and called it done.
