I have been super busy making cards in the last week or so, and I will endeavor to put up pix of at least some of what I've been up to! In an effort to hopefully get anything at all posted successfully, I will simply be making multiple short posts, rather than one epic one!
This card I made for Melissa's 'For the Love of Cats and Dogs Swap' on Splitcoaststampers. I used an Inkadinkado Mini Clear stampset for it and decided to keep it as elegant as possible by using mostly black and white, with only a touch of wine cs to mat. The swirly, shiny black and white print that is just behind the stamped image is cut from some folder's I bought in the Dollar Tree! I have bought several folders there since the patterns are often beautiful, and they aren't too heavy either! I also decided to use my Cuttlebug to emboss the birds and swirls onto the front of my black cs base. (Sorry it's a bit hard to see in the photo!)
Be sure to check out Melissa's swap! I put a link at the bottom of this post.
My British Bulldog is from another Clear Mini stamp set made by Inkadinkado! It was quite a challenge to color in the finer details of the flad on his shirt, but luckily I occasionally am blessed with a steady hand!
I hope that the swappers who get my cards in Melissa's swap like them and enjoy them as much as I liked making them! Be sure to check Melissa's signature line to see what other swaps she has come up with to host! She's a great host, and a talented gal! Hope to see you join in too!
As promised, here is the link for Melissa's 'For the Love of Dog's and Cat's swap':
