I just woof you...

Hello friends!

It's time for another Scenic Saturday over on the Bellarific blog. As we near February I can't help but start to feel the love, especially when it comes to my card making. Roses are such a classic motif of Valentine's Day and there is a gorgeous oversized rose stamp that is included in the Edgar and Molly Vintage Flower set which I hadn't inked up yet. Rather than have it be the focal point of my card I went a different route and stamped it repeatedly in a light grey/brown ink that matched the card stock I planned to use. I then used a couple of light pink Copic markers to color only the space between the roses which created a lovely floral print pattern for my background. At first I planned on pairing this background with an elegant Uptown Girl but when my eyes fell on this sweet little Boston pup dressed in her tutu from the Bostons, Pug and Chihuahua set it made me smile to think of her on such a fancy looking print. So I embraced the shift to a sweet pup theme and even found the perfect sentiment in the Dog Sentiment set, which I augmented slightly by replacing one of the stamped words with a die cut version so it would have a bit more impact on the bottom of the card. I like to think of this as a non-traditional card posing as a traditional Valentine. At first glance pairing that rose with one of the dog stamps may seem a bit odd but with just a little twist I think it is quite sweet. So always keep an open mind when it comes to pairing up stamps in your own stamp stash.   :) 

Stay crafty bellas!

Love the way you created the patterned background. I thought it was designer paper when I first looked
