Do you have a friend or loved one that lives far away? What a perfect opportunity to send a handwritten note to say hello. Sure, emails and texts are definitely quicker, but the old-fashioned elegance of sitting down to write cannot compare.
I first stamped the puppy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the middle of a 4”x 5 ¼” panel of white cardstock.
To color it in, I used the following colors of Spectrum Noir markers:
Cool Greys—IG3, IG4 (body)
Yellows and —CT1, CT2 (letter)
Before using the stencil, I created a mask for the puppy by stamping it onto some Inkadinkado Masking Paper, cutting it out and placing it over the puppy.
I then secured the stencil over the card panel using some Post-It Tape.
Using a sponge dauber and Robin’s Egg and Surf ink from Colorbox, I blended the ink over the stencil so it covered the middle of the card over the puppy. I kept the ink light in some areas to give the look of raindrops.
After removing the stencil and the mask, I added a sentiment from the set right below the puppy being sure to use my Precision Press. I added a couple of small clouds I cut out of the Sizzix Unicorn and Rainbows die and embossing folder set.
I colored over the clouds with a little bit of Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. Wink of Stella clear would work well too.
A simple and sweet note to send hugs from far away. That puppy is so cute! Thanks so much for joining me today.
