New Challenge at Fussy and Fancy - Dreamerland Crafts - My Dear Puppy

Good morning everyone,

Thank goodness it is Friday, I have felt so tired this week, probably the shock of going back to work lol. I hope you have all had a fabulous week.

This morning, we begin a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy. Our lovely Diane  is hosting the challenge for the next two weeks and has chosen the theme:
 'Pamper Your Pets'

At first I was scratching my head wondering what I could do for this challenge and then I had a light bulb moment and found this gorgeous stamp by Dreamerland Crafts called 'My Dear Puppy'.

Yes another male card!!

I stamped the image with Stazon Timber Brown ink onto Fabriano extra white water colour card and coloured the image using DI reinkers. 

The papers are by Maja from the Vintage Romance collection called Words of Love and have been edged with white gesso.

The stars edge border is a Joy die and I think the cute buttons and tag die are by Crafters Companion.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Jumper: Pumice Stone, Barn Door
Trousers: Faded Jeans
Pup: Frayed Burlap, Gathered T wigs, Grand Espresso
Grass: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters
Sky: Tumbled Glass

The winner of this challenge will be invited to Guest Design with us for an upcoming challenge.

The stamp can be purchased here.

That's it from me today.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for popping in.
