Bella & Friends depicts little dogs, dogs that remind me of a friend of mine's little Murray who has gone to that place in the sky, and her current dog Fred.
I don't have a dog - just a cat - who follows me around like a dog. Right now he is sitting on my lap. There's something about my sitting at the computer that makes him feel that he has to be included so he begs and begs until I allow him up.
Over the next several days I will be posting a card made using this stamp set. They will be 4 by 4 cards that will be placed into a box.
The first card is a birthday card.
- The little dog holding the balloon obviously got pulled up into the sky by the balloon - maybe on purpose to find the shortest route to where a birthday is being celebrated. He was coloured with Sahara Sand and a blender pen. The collar and balloon were coloured with Real Red ink.
- Some Wink of Stella clear glimmer was applied to the balloon, collar and tiny nose.
- After cutting him out, he was adhered to a background using dimensionals. The background was sponged with Soft Sky and Marina Mist to mimic a sky. Some clouds (punched using the Cupcake Builder punch) were added and adhered to the sky using dimensionals. The edges were sponged with Marina Mist before attaching.
- The sentiment is from Balloon Celebrations.
