My life is crafting or crafting is my life. I cannot imagine life without being able to show myself in my art.

I thought this new MOUTHFULS stamp from Art Impressions would make a cute Valentine Day card for a friend. I stamped the big dog onto decorative paper using Black Stazon and cut him out. Then I stamped the wagon using Marvy Marker, English Red, onto watercolor paper. I inked up the puppies with Sepia Marvy Marker and stamped it so the puppies look as though they are ready for a ride. I took a damp paint brush #4, and pulled the ink into and around the wagon to color it. I rinsed my brush and did the same for the puppies. I took a fine point black marker to mark over the puppies eyes to accent them. Before gluing the big dog onto the paper I stamped the clouds with a blue marker and again pulled the color with a damp brush. The same with the grass. I repeatedly stamped the grass across the bottom of the page. I stamped the heart with BE MINE already on it and cut it out, I slit the big dogs mouth and slid the heart in it. I stamped his hat on decorative paper, cut it out and glued it onto his head. I used the same decorative paper to make a layer under the stamped image and mounted both onto a A2 size card, ready to get mailed.
