Last month Belinda was the Mystery Designer with the winning comment. Wonder who it will be this month????
Here's a bit about how I created this card. I actually used the digi version so that I could enlarge the puppies and create a mirror image. After printing the puppies and die cutting them out with the heart shaped die from Lifestyle Crafts (Nesting Hearts), I began creating the background using Distress Paints (Dusty Concord, Wild Honey, Peacock Feather). After creating a mask for the images, I spritzed water onto the top of Distress Paint dauber and pounced it down onto the cardstock. The extra water makes the top really juicy so that it will splat really well. (I saw this technique being used on someone's blog fairly recently, but I don't remember who's. If you know who's blog this was on, I'd love to give them proper credit.)
After I was happy with the background and removed the masks, I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink. It was then heat set with Black Detail embossing powder. A thin line of dimensional glue was added around the edge and covered with Laser Green glitter.
Diamond mesh from Mon Ami Gabby) holds the paw charm with the help of a couple jump rings. This allows it to swing around, just like a real dog tag would. The dog tag was die cut using MFT's Pet Charms die and then heat embossed with Silver Bells embossing powder. It was heat embossed on both the front and back, since it does swing.
A Crafters Companion embossing folder (Distress) was used to create the mat behind the heart. A couple more layers completes the card.
So now it's time to go see what Ashley has created for you this month. Don't forget to leave a comment with each of us for the Grand Prize. Happy Hopping!
