OLW 55 - Cats and Dogs on a square

Combining challenges again today. This time for OLW hosted by Jennifer with the theme of Cats and Dogs as well as Simply Less is More on Pick a Square (my 2nd!).


I'm posting this quick as this card is about to go to a friend who lent me a book.

I again used the thumping technique that Chrissie mentioned for this LIMette challenge.  I used Stampin Up Blushing Bride ink pad and Regal Rose marker.  As you can see, I made two very similar cards - well the stamps were out! :-)

My challenge entry is the second one I made and this time, I spritz it slightly with glimmer mist (home-made with Stampin Up shimmer paint and isopropyl alcohol in a mini-mister).  I quite prefer this more mottled look. What do you think?

This was such fun to do. I do love this dog image. Both heart and dog belong to a clear stamp set which, unfortunately, I've got no more details on...sorry.
