Heart 2 Heart ~ For the Love of Pets

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This challenge is right up my ally for so many reasons! First, animals are a big part of my life as I am a retired veterinarian.  Second, crafting with animals is one of my favorite things to use in my projects. So when I saw the Rainbow Bridge Stamp and Thin Cuts I knew this was what I wanted to use for this Challenge.

Love this sentiment as it is a beautiful way to celebrate a pets passing.

I used my Copic markers to color the dog and the rainbow.  I used Glacier cardstock for the sky with the White Daisy.  I stamped the rainbow on White Daisy and then hand cut it.  I used Lemon for the halo and Candy Apple for the hearts.

I know it is hard to see but I did use the Gold Shimmer Brush to go over the halo.  I also used my yellow Copic marker to color the stars.  The stars are from the loose Gold Sequins and I just ran my marker over them to give them a yellow tint.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until May 31th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

I went with Fern, Raspberry and Carolina with neutrals.

To create the cloud background I cut cloud shapes on my Cricut and used them as a mask.

Highlight the Details – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are Highlighting the Details.  This could be focusing on a part of a stamped image, using a variety of different mediums such as water color, markers, ink, etc.  There are around 12 of us focusing on Highlighting the Details.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to pull out one of my favorite stamps from this Idea Book, Know that I Care.

I used the Feels Like Home paper pack, Espresso Pigment Ink Pad, Stitched Square Thin Cuts and the Quilted Thin Cuts. I started by stamping the flowers from the Know that I Care stamp set using the Espresso Pigment Ink Pad.

I then used the small stitched square from the Quilted Thin Cuts.  I cut out four squares so that they lined up (I did mess up a bit when lining up the flowers on one of the squares). I then chose to color one flower using Sage and Sugarplum.  I did add a bit of the Sugarplum Shimmer Brush to all the areas I colored Sugarplum.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto DARLYS RECKER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork Highlighting the Details!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!
