More dogs and fishies

I'm still playing with my new stamps, it's great to have some mojo back!

MFT Camp Create is back and today's theme is Monochrome.  I copied Stephanie's glitter border idea ... I've just spotted some blue glitter on Greg's face, maybe I was a bit over-enthusiastic LOL ;)  I also added glitter to my bubbles and to the top fish's eyelids, and then some Spectrum Noir sparkle to their fins so it's nice and sparkly.  Background stencilled with chalk using a Simon Says Stamp stencil
I copied my sign/hook from Sandy's card here.

I'm so pleased I got these Tim Holtz stamps, I'm in love with every dog in the set!  I've paired this one with a little bark sentiment from Eat Cake Graphics:

My watercoloured background was inspired by the gorgeous pic over at Addicted to Stamps - for the 'do what you love' element I added some splatters, coloured enamel dots and a doodled border :)
Dog coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals; clear gloss added to his eyes and nose.

  2. Your little fish are so funny! I love them all done up in blue. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Us Girls!

  3. Oh my! Two absolutely marvelous cards! Your fish are charming; perfect for Day 1 of Camp Create! And your dog...brilliant! A fantastic connection to the inspiration photo! Thank you for bringing your artistry to the ATSM gallery!

  4. OMG, I laughed at the fishes AND the dog! Love both these cards, and your coloring is spectacular, as usual. Hope you are having a good week with lots of sparkly creativity happening. BTW, it's good for our DH's to walk around with a little glitter on their bodies. It gives their co-workers something to wonder about. he he
