AAA cards Challenge

AAA cards Challenge: one favorite.

So I think my new favorite item from my stash is the Penny Black stampset I got this week ( Buddy and Duck).

The images are sooooooo cute and although i'm more a cat person at heart these dogs still melt my heart.

It was so hard to choose the image to use for the challenge, but in the end I settled on Buddy flying away.

I stamped the image and the sentiment from the same set with My Favorite things hybrid black ink on Schut 300 grams watercolor paper.
I used the MISTI as I had to stamp the images a few times to get a good inpression on the knobbly paper.

I used Distress inks to color the image and for the splatter and then some Ranger enamel accents for the spots on the balloon, I found it impossible to avoid those ;-).
As the panel is slightly smaller than the cardbase I sued a strip of washi tape on the cardbase to fill the gap. and I thought it would match the balloon quite nicely with the white dots.
