Pets Corner card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Pets Corner". Show of your pets, or projects that are inspired of your pets.

Unfortunately I don't have pets. I work too much so I'm not able to give enough attention. But I would like a little dog, and this Crazy Dog would be perfect. I started with a layer of Grit-Paste for the background of the card. While it was drying I continued coloring the Crazy Dog. The main color I used was Pumice Stone, a brownish gray color. The eyes I've given some dimension with Glossy Accents.

When the Grit-Paste was dry I applied in some places Opal Magic Blue-Gold paint with a Mixed Media Silicone Brush. I then grabbed for my new addiction: Infusions .... I started with Royal Blood with Mod Pogde that I diluted with water. Then a little The Sage, and finally around the edges Black Knight. This I've dried the Heat Tool. When it was all dry I've Royal Blood and Black Knight and sprayed that with water. That makes it even more intense.



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers.

Oh my! This is totally fabulous, Sandra! Love all the work you did to the background. The Royal Blue Infusions is perfect, I definitely need to order it to my collection. Love the texture made with grit paste and all the colors blended together and the Opal Magic seen through them. Perfect card! Hugs, Marzena

This is such a creative card! I would've never thought to use the color palette you chose, but it is stunning! And what a great idea to use a cute little doggie as the subject for a Get Well card. I'm sure this gem of a card would make anyone feel better! Great work!
