Valentine's Day Puppy Series #4: Puppy Love with Clearly Besotted

Hi Crafty Friends!
I have one more in my Puppy Valentine Series! This is #4! If you missed the first three, you have to check out the cuteness! Here is #1, Here is #2, and Here is #3. This card I decided to try some new techniques. I blended oxide inks (Candy Apple and Pick Raspberry) then I took my Newton's Nook heart stencil and tried to put the heart on top with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide, it didn't turn out as bright as I wanted but subtle hearts works too! Then I splattered with water. I cut the scalloped hearts out to frame each puppy. I used my NEW Altenew Watercolor Brushes to brush red watercolor in the middle of the hearts. Next, I popped the cute little puppies in the hearts with foam tape and stamped the sentiments.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you have any pets? How many? What kind?
A: Me? Just my cute little maltipoo, Maddie (pic below)

  1. Maddie is darling and the pup on the card looks just like her. Darling card, I absolutely love the way you've presented the hearts. I don't have a dog, but hoping for one soon to walk me. My little buddy Marley the Maltese just spent a week with me while his family went on holiday. Thanks so much for joining us at CRAFT Challenge this week!

  2. I love the subtle look of the background, the hearts on it look just amazing. Your puppies are utterly cute and you've done great job with your coloring -love the white gel pen! Thanks for joining us at TIME OUT Challenges!

  3. These couldn't be more adorable and your colouring really brings them to life. And that background is gorgeous, its so soft and love all the little hearts. So very glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!
