I was fascinated by Jana Millen’s “tree and cat in the snow” card in this post the moment I saw it. As I have a Golden Retriever, (and don’t have at cat), I decided to make a similar card with the Labrador die. And since it feels as if spring is just around the corner here in the Pacific Northwest, I created my card to reflect the spring season. You’ll notice the sky still looks as if there’s a chance of rain – well, that’s the PNW for you!
The background was stamped twice – first with the soft pool shadow ink and then with the soft granite. I shifted the stamp just a titch between the two stampings. I added distress ink to all of the die cuts just to soften them a bit. This is a big card – almost 6 1/2″ tall and 4 3/4″ wide in order to accommodate that magnificent tree!
