Said goodbye yesterday to our sweet puppy dog, Keesha. She had a long & happy life, but it's never long enough. I know some of you have furbaby family members & understand the sadness & empty feeling. I was off today, thankfully, & spent some time concentrating on making a card.
The beautiful sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new Penny Black stamp, with flourish, 40-241, which coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 16. I inked the stamp with a Faber-Castell big brush & immediately poured on embossing powder. The pretty hat & sentiment are from Penny Black's lace delight, 30-115. I paper pieced the hat & colored it with the big brush & some COPIC markers. The roses are brushed with Shimmer Spritz & Stickles was added to the lace. Foam tape is used to attach the top of the hat & give it shape while the brim is glued flat with the lace edge slightly bent up. I like the aqua, lavender & gray color combo. Hope you do, too. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I'm still catching up & will visit you soon--not used to Feedly yet.
