Dog Days

I have a few quick and simple cards to share today, using the 'Dog-gone Sweet' set by Penny Black. I coloured the images using watercolour pencils, then added a doodled border and sentiment (from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual). I stamped some paw prints (using a stamp from the 'Man's Best Friend' set also by Penny Black) across my card blanks, then added a snippet of paper (from the 'Awesome Boy' pad by Michaels) to each one...with some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, and popped the dogs on top...simple!


Here are the individual cards:
