British Bulldog Male Birthday card

Good Morning everyone.

So today Im Sharing the second card i made for my brothers birthday.  Santa Claus was very good to me this year as Ive had the Tim Holtz Crazy birds, dog and cat stamps on my wish list forever.  So this is my first use of them.

My brother has a British bulldog tattoo so thought this was apt for something different.  Very Old papermania portobello papers (knew they would come in useful one day!), Sizzix Polaroid frames.

  I first stamped the dog in blue ink onto the larger polaroid centre and inked around the edges in blue, clearly besotted sentiment stamp.  I stamped the dog in blue and coloured with distress inks, fired brick, tea dye and old paper. I stamped the bone, food, lead and ball in blue and coloured with the same distress inks and cut them all out. Glossy accents on the ball, food and his collar.  All matted with navy and white cardstock. 

and a second one for my box, similar but different. 

Thank you for looking. Emma
