Handsome Mutt Handmade Card

My daughter adopted a rescue mutt.   Tank is a very handsome dog, but since he is not a purebred I had not been able to find a stamp that looks like him.  At a Craft Convention I found Friends4Cookie by Stamps of Life and bought the set immediately, because Cookie looks like Tank.  So, of course I wanted to make a card for my daughter.

Handmade Card featuring a mutt mixed breed rescue dog.

Since Tank is a reddish brown color, I thought a bright background would make the card more interesting.  I used distress ink mini cubes and a wide flat brush to paint a messy rainbow brushstroke background.

I stamped and colored Cookie/Tank, fussy cut the image and then went along the edge with a brown Copic so he wouldn\’t have a white edge.  I thought the sentiment was cute so I fussy cut and mounted it as well.

I am entering this card in Card Concepts Colorful Basics Challenge
I was drawn to the rainbow stripes in the inspiration photo.  I think my card fits best in the Clean and Layered category.

Thanks for stopping by!
