Coming Your Way...

Can you believe it's the third Saturday in April already?
This month has flown by.

It's my day for posting on the Great Impressions Blog, 
and what a fun image this was to work with!

For this card, the following Great Impressions Stamps were used:

The Center Step Card seemed perfect for this darling little puppy.
First, the image was stamped directly onto the center panel.
The flowers, greenery, and butterflies were colored with Copics.
I sponged some green 'grass', and some blue clouds, and then stamped the sentiment.
The image was stamped again onto a white CS scrap.  
It was colored, then the dog and one butterfly were fussy cut, and adhered with dimensional
foam pieces to the center panel. The foam pieces gave his such a realistic appearance!
The last step was to find a cute patterned paper, and cut some strips for the sides and
bottom panels.

As you can see, this image requires very little coloring, and looks so sweet!

Don't forget - about the GI challenges!
A fun challenge for April is going on now. 
If you use GI stamps be sure to link up to the customer gallery (HERE)

Be sure to stop by the Great Impressions store (HERE) and treat yourself to a few new stamps!

Did you know shipping is free over $25?! 

That's it for today!

Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.
