I Love Promarkers (49) - Keep It Sweet & Simple

I don't know about you but sometimes I get in a bit of a rut with the colours I use for my cards, usually soft pastels, so 'teal and brown' is quite a change for me. I think it worked rather well though. It also makes a change to make a male card, so much easier to make female ones don't you think. I coloured the cute little dog with Promarkers, inked the dges and layered it with Nesties which I raised with foam pads. The panel underneath has a punched border with two ribbons and three gems added. A circular sentiment and three buttons to finish. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Dog Stamp - Penny Black
