Puppy Love

I'm ashamed to say that the stamp I've used on today's card had been very much neglected...I got the 'Every which way' set by Penny Black when it first came out years ago...and have only used this stamp a couple of times before...so when my group of Penny Black crafty friends started up our friendly 'challenges' again recently...with a theme of 'Puppy Love'...I thought now would be the perfect time to show him some ink. I coloured him using watercolour pencils...then added Glossy Accents to the heart balloon. The papers are a mixture of BasicGrey 'Blush' and My Mind's Eye 'Adore'...I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using mmy CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The hearts were cut using my Cuttleebug 'Concentric Hearts' die...and the sentiment (which I curved to match the shape of the circle before inking) is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp.
