Doggie with heart

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: pets corner.
 For my card I used a new Wild Rose Studio stamp called  Cl503 Dog with heart.
and for the sentiment I used a Technique Tuesday stamp called say it- love you by Ali Edwards.

I mounted them both on my WRMK precision press and inked them up with My Favorite Things hybrid black ink. Stamped it quite a few times to get a nice dark impression on the watercolor paper.

I used  Distress inks to color him or her. Whilst I was coloring I thought the doggie needed a bow,  but then decided against it ;-) I don't like dressed up pets.

Mounted the panel with foamtape and as the panel is narrower than the cardbase I filled the gap with a red valentine washi tape with swirls and can't see much of it though, still it gives the illusion of a scalloped edge I think.

I added wink of stella clear glitter on the heart and nose for some shine and a healty looking dog, white gel pen to brighten up the eyes and a  reflection on the heart.
