Vintage Ink and the dog...

Hello friends

Hope you are all good....
Hope you have had a good week...
My week has been really busy as in between work,
I decided ( on a whim)  to finally re-locate to the warmth of the house,
I love working in my shed but  have to say....the cold has beat me!

Anyway I thought I would share this make with you  
I really enjoyed creating this one.
I created the background using a brayer and lots Paperartsy fresco chalk paints

 The image is one of my favourites......
Its from Paperartsy Vintage Ink and the dog stamp sets here
I stamped used black Archival ink

I wasn't sure how the image would stamp out on top of the brayered layers of paint,
but I really like how it has given it a distressed/worn look....

I  added lots of stitching and layered it over another piece of painted card,
which I had also added some of Tim Holtz rub-ons to.
I decided to stamp out  another set of words and mount them onto 3d foam to give it some dimension.
Right I better clean up my desk as the big down side of being in the house is
I can`t shut the door on it and walk away (like I would of in my shed)
everyone who visits can now see how messy I am!

As always feel free to leave a comment,great to know you've popped by
Wishing you a fabulous weekend!
Bye for now
