Enjoy the ride

Hi Everyone!  Just passing by to share this card with the adorable new set "Enjoy the ride".
To create this card I used the masking technique to stamp the puppies and car on one sheet.  I started by stamping the puppies on a piece of watercolor paper (I used Tim Holtz distress watercolor paper).  Next I used some 'not too sticky' washi tape I had laying around to loosely cover up the puppies where I didn't want the lines from the car image to stamp.  Alternatively, you could stamp the puppies on some scrap paper, cut them out and lay the cutout over the stamped puppies.
Next I lined up where I wanted the car window to be with the puppy's paws and stamped this over the washi tape.  I carefully removed the washi tape (watch out for wet ink over the washi tape if using this as the mask) and then realized I covered up too much of the puppies and had to draw in part of the window (after all, it is a journey right?).

To color the puppies, I used Derwent Inktense and a water brush.  Once this dried, I used a Misti to position the top and bottom sentiments from the 'Enjoy the ride' set and stamped these.  

I used the scalloped rectangle from Unity Stamp Co to cut out the image and glued this to an A2 dark grey card base.  Lastly, I finished by gluing some sequins to the card.

Hopefully part of your journey includes creating some cute cards with these two puppies.  Enjoy the journey!
