Today I am sharing two cards which I made using the new collection from Dreamees called Pretty Pets. I love Dreamees products because they are reasonably priced but give more than excellent value for money. Everything is original and I do love how they have introduced MDF to crafters who maybe haven’t felt confident to use MDF. This collection I love because the designed for the cat and dog lovers and whilst I haven’t made any cards with cats on there are some projects which are in the pipeline. As my friends know I am owned by a Shih Tzu and I love the cute expression on this doggy. So here’s how I made the cards.
Firstly I printed out some papers from the accompanying CD and for this card I chose the orange and yellow section as it was something different and it’s not a colour scheme I use often. I then chose some adorable scoreable to match the colours of the paper. I first put the orange adorable scoreable on the base of a 7×7 inch card and from there layered the paper with the card. I cut my Hunkydory Ink Me card and stamped a border around the edge using Black Staz On and also on a smaller piece of card stamped two dogs for both cards. However I thought that the Ink Me card looked far too white and decided to use the orange and yellow dinky inkies to make a coloured background. I think it has made such a difference to the card.
I set the card aside to dry and then set to work on the dog. I used various shades of grey and some black from the Colourblend Essentials tin and built up my shading that way. I am new to Colourblend pencils and am pleased with the way the fur is. I cut the dog out and placed it on the card background. I always save offcuts of card incase I need them so I had some small pieces of black and white which I used to cut the bowl and bone for the final look. I think it looks fab.
This card is made the same way as the above using the purple and grey palette. This time I didn’t bother with a stamped border, I put my little dog in the middle and made a border using the bowl and bone. They are cut from the adorable scoreable used in the card, for a completely different look.
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to your next visit.
