Puppy Love

wow, not sure what to say, it's been so long since I stamped or posted. Let's see - okay, I have always been so inspired by the Technique Junkie newsletters and the current issue featured Paper Peeling which looked like a good one to try as I got my feet wet with the whole stamping thing again. Which reminds me - a big thank you to those who urged me not to sell my entire stamp and supply collection when I felt like I would never make another card. So this is the first one in almost a year.

I stamped the dog once on white cardstock, and again on a Post-it. I trimmed the Post-it image, applied that over the original stamped image, and then sponged the background in. I trimmed the mouth area of the dog's face to accomodate the rolled up newspaper. The silver heart charm says Love on it and the 'paper' in his mouth is an actual ad for animal adoptions. I thought that combined with the 'good news' stamp would make a great way to announce a new dog adoption!

Hope you enjoyed, thanks for checking in :o)
