Friends of Unity Blog Hop ~ Furry Friends

Hello, friends!

Welcome to August and welcome to our Friends of Unity Blog Hop as we focus on Furry Friends!

I must admit that I do not create with many furry friend stamps. This proved to be a challenge for me, but I had a great time regardless all the mishaps. ;)

My first card was so quick to create and I love it. I've been wanting to send a "hello" card to a fellow crafter. His little dog is his very best friend, so this is perfect for him!

The dog stamp was in my latest grab bag. He is from Angie Bloms Lucky Dog stamp set. As a matter of fact, other than some playful pups from Phyliss Harris, he is the only dog stamp I own! He has a bit of a scowl on his face and it makes him irresistibly adorable!
He is simply stamped on a scrap piece of Bristol smooth. I added a bit of color with a Zig and fussy cut him out. I love this stencil from Taylored Expressions. I used my blending brush to add Distress Ink in Faded Jean. The sentiment is from Lisa Aranas Looking Foxy stamp set.
For my second card I used Cuddlebug Kitty from Tierra Jackson. I adore her!

I stamped her in Distress Ink Vintage Photo onto Canson XL watercolor. What I love about stamping in Distress Ink is that you can use the ink from the image to move around color. When I know I don't want too much color on my image I simply run my wet brush over the stamped image and move it around to color with. Other than adding a bit of green to her eyes and a bit of pink to her nose, ears and pads, I did not need add any additional ink to color this image. She is beautiful!

If I may, I'd love to invite you to follow my blog.
There is a "follow" button up a bit and to the right. --->
Not the follow by email, it's up just a bit from it. Thank you so much!
It brings me so much joy sharing my thoughts and creations with all of you!

(Unfortunately, I don't think you have access to the follow button from your phone. Please, correct me if I am mistaken.)

As always~

Thanks for spending time with me today!

Until next time~

Be blessed, friends!
