Little Red Wagon #528
Allsorts \”Inspired by a Song\” Challenge
My Inspiration was The Gnome Song The Gnome Song
Easter is getting closer so I thought is was time to make a card or two. This week\’s Watercooler Wednesday Challenge is \”All About Occasions\” so this was the perfect time to get started.
This was a cute little \”freebie\” stamp I received from Stamps of Life (Somebunny). I thought these small images would be very cute stamped and flipped in a pattern stamp background. I stamped using a block and then colored with copics (RV00, RV23, YG00, YG01, B0000, B00, Y00, Y08 and W0 for the ears). I added a few gel pen accents and Pretty Pink Posh jewels in coordinating colors. I embossed the darling sentiment and adhered with some foam tape.
Update: My card was selected as a Tuesday Throwdown \”Top Pick\”! Many thanks to this fun challenge.

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.
|Adorable Mixed Breed Mutt|
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.
