Rainbow Puppies

I have a couple of clean and simple cards to share today featuring a couple of cute Penny Black pups (from the 'Good Times!' set) and a Hero Arts 'Zig Zag' background stamp. I started by inking up the background stamp with Distress Inks (Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Salty Ocean, Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick), spritzed it with a little water, before stamping it on to some watercolour paper to create a rainbow colour background. I then cleaned off the stamp, inked it again with some Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. I stamped the pups, on to some more watercolour paper, and coloured them using watercolour pencils. I added a sentiment from the 'Birthday Buddies' set by Paper Smooches, and cut the rainbow background into strips, and used them to border each of the image panels.
