Party Pup!

I have another 'spritzed' card to share today...inspired by the 'Trio of Colours' challenge over at Simon Says Stamp (Mondays). I picked three colours of Distress Ink to make my background - Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves & Evergreen Bough. I dampened a piece of white card, then painted a stripe of each colour across it...allowing the colours to run into each other a little. Once it was dry, I spritzed each of the colours over the top, then trimmed it down. I added a cute Whipper Snapper dog image...'Party Pup'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils and the same Distress Ink colours, then fussy cut. I matted it on to white and then black look like a Polaroid photo...and added a sentiment from a little Studio G set.

Challenges for this card:
One more thing before I go....first day back at school tomorrow...and lots do do! Despite what my blogoversary counter thingy is my blog's 7th birthday! I shall be organising a little candy to keep your eyes peeled!

Great idea to spritz with the same colours as your background, and what a fab colour combo too.
Thanks for sharing with us.
