4 legged pals

Just a very quick post from me this time.  I was given some fabulous CCK rubber stamps last week and just had to stamp and colour some up - it has been a manic 4 days lol and not much else has been done in the house.  I think the stamps were probably from the days when Sweet Pea Stamps was in operation but that is only a guess. 

I couldn't resist entering this challenge with one of the cards I made which has a 4 legged furry friend on it :) :).  Should mention, I have popped over to the Etsy store to get the link for this image but I can't find it, either I am missing it or it has only been available in rubber.

To create my card I stamped the image then hand drew in some of the background in the style that was used on the stamp as I wanted to create the image over a large area of the card.  Next I stamped the image again on to a bit of paper and fussy cut so I could use this for masking which I needed to do for the background.  Out with the Distress Oxides to colour the background and then time to move onto the image where I used Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils along with a gold pen for the dots.  I then stamped a border stamp in black and picked out a few areas to go over with Stickles.  The background paper was also created with Distress Oxides then embossed.  The image was mounted on black then gold card before being attached to the card base.  To finish off a simple Happy Birthday sentiment.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-
