The Challenge 38-Woof You

The Challenge is back again with a new challenge!  This week we've got a color challenge for you to try out--coral, navy, and kraft.

Woof You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Avery Elle
I used Avery Elle's Furry Friends stamp set and coordinating dies to put together this sweet card using the challenge colors.  I stamped one of the set's dog images on kraft cardstock, then shaded it a bit with Copic markers before cutting it out with the matching die.  I adhered it to a cream panel using foam tape. I did a little creative masking of the set's "you're" sentiment to stamp the "woof you" sentiment next to the dog in navy pigment ink.  To go with the sentiment, I added a coral heart, die cut with a die from the Icon Fill in the Blank dies.

After matting the image on coral cardstock, I adhered it to a coral striped patterned paper panel.  I tucked a navy half circle underneath the left edge of the image panel.  It was accented with a pair of copper brads.  The finished panel was adhered to a kraft card base.
