SIP Challenge #140 - Four Legged Friends with Hero Arts Raining Cats & Dogs

Happy Happy Tuesday!  Is your week going well so far?  We've had soooo much rain lately but we did have a really nice weekend and nice weather on Saturday and Sunday.  We were so happy to see the sun!  Of course now, it's raining again but at least the two days of sun gave our lawn a chance to dry out a little bit!

Well you know it's Tuesday!  Time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  This week it's a Four Legged Friends Challenge and you know I'm all about dogs.. lol  I did throw in a cat for good measure!  I actually love cats too but our dogs don't. :(

I thought I'd do something I rarely do... make a shape card.  I used the Hero Arts Nesting Clouds Infinity Dies. This adorable stamp and die set as well as the Nesting Clouds Infinity Dies, were add ons for a My Monthly Hero Kit last year and the adorable rain stencil was part of the kit!

I love that the dogs have their tongues out... no doubt lapping up some of that rain that is coming down.  lol  I used 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock for my card base.  I cut two of the cloud shapes out but I used my scoreboard to score a little line at the top of the back card to allow the top to swing open.  I used some Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive to adhere the top of the cloud panels together.  I cut another cloud out of Vellum and heat embossed the sentiment on it.  I used my rain mask and some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and an Ink Blending Tool to add my rain.  I stamped my dogs and cat onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and then clear embossed them.  I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color them and as you can see.. I didn't add a lot of color... just enough that they weren't completely plain.  I used my Plus Permanent Vellum Glue Tape Dispenser to adhere my vellum in a few places.  I'm really loving that it works pretty well and hardly shows.  I do try to cover up the adhesive when possible but it is more invisible than most adhesive for vellum.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
