OLW55 -- Cats n' Dogs

It's been a while since I've participated in One Layer Wednesday challenges. I was so surprised that it was already up to #55!


Challenge #55 is to create a one layer card and use a cat or dog image on your card. I've had several Paper Smooches stamp sets for a while now, still waiting to be inked.

I stamped the dog and sentiment from the Birthday Buddies set and colored the dog with Copics. To "ground" the pup, I stamped a (discontinued) ribbon stamp by Hero Arts. Done!

Here's a close up view of the stamped ribbon. Doesn't it look like real ribbon?



I'd forgotten how fun it is to create one layer cards--and they're quick, too. If you want to play along, you can find out about the challenge details here on Jennifer's blog.

Stamps: Paper Smooches, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Versafine, Colorbox chalk
Other: Copic markers, corner rounder
