Ever had one of those card making experiences where you seem to do nothing but push paper and cardstock around waiting for inspiration to strike... and it continues to allude you?
I had one of those days yesterday, trying to make a card for the friend of a friend. The brief was simple - something with a dog or a cat and nothing over the top girly. Finally, after a lot of umming and ahhing, trying all sorts of combinations... result!
The image is Wild Rose Studio's Toby With Roses and he is coloured with copics. The background DP and green DP are both from my new "Homemade Collection" from Kaisercraft, the script paper is from Kaisercraft's Timeless Collection. The lace is once again from the old lace I rescued from my grandmother's house and the pearls and metal paperclip embellishments are from my stash. Everything was distressed and inked up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.
After all that angst, I think it's one of the nicest cards I've made. :)
