Puppy Love

This is another "butterfly" card that I am sending off to Devan. I did it for LSC131, which was actually a 3-part challenge to (1) make a "scene" card, (2) use an animal stamped image that is not necessarily associated with fall/autumn and (3) make a tent-topper card. I have discovered, after making this card, that if you cut a piece of cardstock to 8 1/2" by 4 1/4", fold in in half and put the tent "topper" on it, that it is almost the perfect size to fit in an envelope! I always hesitated to make one because I didn't want to customize an envelope. I used Marvy's giga oval and scallop oval punches, plus the mega oval punch. Also, both of SU's oval punches were used, too! To watercolor the image, I used my reinkers with a blender pen. To make a watercolor image work the best, you MUST use watercolor paper, otherwise the paper will get mushy and the colors will NOT blend well! I just put a little drop off the ink in the lid of the coordinating ink pad, then use my blender pen to apply the color. (Thanks to Kittie747 from SCS for teaching me how to do this way back when!)
