Dogs Stamp Set by Jane's Doodles

Hello this is Nicky back with you today with this simple but slightly time consuming card.  I'll call this my 'virtually' no line watercolour card since I wanted a little definition.  The card uses Dogs Stamp Set by Jane's Doodles.

I created a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and die cut it using the largest frame die from Die-Namics Blueprint #25 by My Favorite Things.  I stamped my images using Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  I called this my 'virtual' no line watercolour card because I chose to use the 1st generation stamp rather than the 2nd generation stamp that is preferred for true, no line watercolour painting.

I wanted to create a casual wallpaper affect (without the repeat) and starting from the top of the card and working my way down I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to watercolour each image.  Sometimes I used the brush directly to make the outline and other defined areas bolder.

The card was finished out with a tag that was stamped with Archival Ink with the paw prints and the sentiment 'Woof' which I probably don't need to tell you means 'Hello'.  I wrapped twine around the card several times and tied it to a big airy bow.  The panel was then adhered to the card base using foam tape.

If you like this style of card then I encourage you to look at all of your stamp sets and future purchases with a mind to using them in this way - if nothing else it is great watercolour painting practice!

Thank you for coming by the blog today, I'll be back next week and in the meantime you can follow me and my other card making endeavours on Instagram #nickynoocards, Pinterest and Facebook. Have a wonderful week!
