Animals at Sweet Stampin'

 Good morning, this is a scheduled post, all being well I should be sunning myself in Italy by the time it goes live! 

This is my DT make for this fortnight's challenge at Sweet Stampin' - the theme is animals. My favourite animal is a dog so when I saw this gorgeous stamp set from Aall and Create featured so beautifully on Brenda's blog, I couldn't resist the temptation! This is my favourite stamp from the set as I think it looks like a Labrador (or possibly  a Great Dane!) It's a large stamp, so large I had to cut his tail off (how could I???) to place it where I wanted to on my card! The background is created by inking in one colour through a stencil then placing another stencil on top and inking in another colour through both of them together- a great way to stretch your stencil-stash!

There's plenty more to see over at Sweet Stampin', as always my teamies have created some beautiful cards for you to enjoy.

Thanks for visiting- see you when I get back!
