You Make Ruff Days Better Card by Samantha Mann for Newton's Nook Designs, Puppy Friends, Cards, Card Making, Distress Inks, Ink Blending, Encouragement Card, Pawprints #pawprints #distressinks #newtonsnook #inkblending #encouragement #cards #cardmaking

I started by coloring all the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, then used the coordinating dies to die cut it out!
isn't he just the cutest?!

I used Distress Inks to ink blend the background in Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio!
then I used the Pawprints Stencil to add to the background! I used the same colors, but with more pressure!

then I used part of the phrase on the stamp set, and combined it with die cut out letters using the Essential Alphabet Die Set to embellish the sentiment!
I heat embossed the stamped part of the sentiment in white onto some black cardstock and then fussy cut out around it!
