when all else fails, take a nap

 Hello, lovelies!

DT Natalia with you here today. 

For today's card, I used this super sweet stamp from the Ruff Life stamp set. Does the little doggy look sooo happy there in his stack of pillows? I envy him!

For my background, I used a stencil with some distress oxides: chipped sapphire, faded jeans and shaded lilac. I then splattered some pearlescent water and some white gouache to give it a bit more interest. 

As the background was quite busy, and I didn't want the stamp to get lost in it, I used an oval die from Waffle Flower and die cut that from vellum. This is a great tip if you have a busy background, as it allows you to still see the beautiful background while giving the main image the focus it deserves! 

For my images, I used my alcohol ink markers (ohuhu brush tip) and then added some highlights with a white gel pen. I went for blues and yellows, and that wasn't intentional but I guess that is what is in my mind these days... same as most of us. 

I then stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and fussy cut it. I decided to use two strips of double sided foam tape for it to ensure it stood up. I really like the results! 

For my base card, I cut some dark blue cardstock to an A2 size and I used fun foam and double sided tape to mount my front panel to it. It's all about dimension, isn't it?

I finished up my card with some embellishments. Check out the beautiful collection over at the Pawsome store, you'll fall in love with the colours! 

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope this card inspires you to create!

Sending hugs,
