Valentine Puppy Love

Sharing a card I did for a customer with you today, and she doesn't mind if I share it with you all.

Her friend has a new puppy, so this is their first Valentine Day together. I have met the little puppy named Lulu, and oh my gosh, too cute for words, but all black. You can't make out his nose (yes he), nor his eyes. He is just a tiny black ball of curly hair. 
Black dogs, that is not going to happen by me. So, I did this puppy keeping him in the blue/grey. Often, blacks do take on a blue undertone. Once I finished painting him I fussy cut him so I would not have a border. I did a colour burst background and die cut it with a new to me rectangle die and attached to my base using foam tape. I then die cut the stacked hearts, keeping a few of the solid hearts in place, which I painted with pearl watercolours in pink. I then attached the embossed die cut heart along with the dog image, which is on foam dots. I added Wink of Stella to the embossed hearts on the heart as well as the puppies nose and eyes. A few sequins and jewel drops in blue finished my card. 

I hope you enjoy this card and thank you for visiting my blog today.

  1. Your pup is just as cute as cute can be, Kia. Your friend and her friend are both going to love your cute pup and card design. I love your color burst background and die cut hearts with a few sparkly inlays. But your adorable pup mounted on the dry embossed heart is the star! TFS my friend. Hugs...
