Rubydoo and a New Home

Brrrr it's been a cold chilly day today.  I'd big plans to get out to the garden again, but after our walk in the park this morning I was foundered!  A wee Saturday afternoon snooze with Ruby went down much better ;)

A few of my lovely bloggy buddies commented on how my new doggy stamp looked like little Ruby, so I've 'coloured' this one in Ruby colours!  I watercoloured my base first, then splattered more purple, and then popped the dog and the balloon up on dimensionals.  Clear gloss and loads of gold glitter added for lots of sparkle.  I wasn't sure how this card was going to turn out, but once I added the gold peel off sentiment it looked 'finished' so I stepped away and let it be, and I love how it turned out :)

I had this lovely housey DP in my sash (was a bargain bought in the Range) and thought it would go well with this older Simon Says Stamp set.  Coloured with watercolour pencils; clear gloss added to the windows and some sparkle with my glitter pen to the door and roof.

  1. Cute, cute, cute! Love the puppy and the funky house. You do so well with splatters, making them look artistic and intentional. I should give them a try, even if they turn out a mess. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say.
