Hello Colourcraft friends. Gail here today. I've made a card today for a friend of mine. When her old dog died she said she couldn't handle a puppy at her age so she wasn't going to get another dog. I couldn't see that lasting and I was right. She decided to adopt an older dog and happy together they are. So to celebrate new beginnings and new friends I've made her a card.
I used dies to emboss the background then used wax resist and Brusho's to colour it. I went green because it reminds me of spring, new starts, fresh growth and happy sunny times.
I started by embossing my background panel with this large paw die and filled in some of the smaller spaces with the tiny heart die. Then I got my Brusho Wax Resist Sticks. I took the paper off one of the sticks and used the edge to rub over the embossed design.
The wax covered paws are left whiter than the background.
I added he paw panel to a dark green base card. I stamped Paper Smooches Dog and sentiments using brown ink and coloured the dog with Sandstone Brusho powder in water. To finish I added a few of the tiny hearts cut from red card.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed my project. Don't forget to share your makes using Colourcraft products in the Create with Colourcraft fb group.
