CardMaker Magazine & Jessica Lynn Originals Blog Hop

Today the ladies on the Cardmaker Magazine blog team are joining the ladies over at Jessica Lynn Originals to share some ideas using their line of clear stamps.  You should be arriving here from Vickie's blog or if you are just joining us you can start from the beginning at the Cardmaker blog.  :)

For my card I was given the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Stamp set to work with.   I decided to go with a soft look, stamping the image with brown Memento ink and coloring in with pale Copic Markers.   I used the BG0000 pen to sketch a soft, loose frame and then colored it in with the same marker and stitched a border around the edge to add a simple detail. 

As I colored this, I kept having a sentiment run through my head so I added my own computer generated phrase to the panel using the "cookie" font before popping it up with foam and adhering the panel to my card base.

Now, I realized too late that I really don't know my dog breads so I colored this spaniel with the wrong coloring, but I was already committed.  ;)  Here's a snapshot of the colors I used.

JessicaLynnOriginal Stamps is offering a free digital stamp today in honor of the hop at her blog. There will also be one winner picked to win a $50 gift card to the JessicaLynnOriginal Stamps website. To enter for a chance to win, you will need to comment on each blog in the hop.
