Okay - I'll admit it. This stamp set is a bit unusual. It really amused me when I purchased it but then I then realized that it could be a bit difficult to color and use. Definitely not for everyone.
The style just doesn't lend itself to realistic shading. And it doesn't really require natural dog colors either.
I wanted to participate in this week's color challenge at Splitcoast
Stampers - Wild Wasabi, Wild Wisteria and Soft Sky.
I try to think of things that could actually be the colors used in the
challenges, but this week I wanted to do something a bit out of the box. And so the combination of colors and dogs was born!
I colored the dogs loosely in watercolor using the challenge colors and a bit of light grey for the shadow.
The stamps are all individual dogs so I created masks to make a little family group.
The sentiment is die cut and inlaid back onto the card.
I hope you enjoyed this card. It was an experiment for me and certainly took me out of my comfort zone for images. I was a little unsure of it at first but the more I look at it, the more I like it.
Stamp: Indigo Blu "Duke's Gang"
Die: LaLa Land "Woof"
