Newton's Nook Designs April Release - Delightful Doxies!

Hello stampy friends!   It's time again for another awesome release from Newton's Nook Designs!   We're starting the festivities by showcasing "Delightful Doxies" - this set is so stinkin' cute!

Delightful Doxies card by Kimberly Rendino for Newton's Nook Designs | doxies | kimpletekreativity.blogspot.com

I was trying to decide which of the cute doxies to use when inspiration hit - what if I sandwiched the sentiment between two ends of one dog!?!   I inked just the first half of the doxie and stamped him, then lined up the sentiment and stamped, and finally, I inked up just the back half and lined that up as best as I could.  It came together better than I ever dreamed it would - the loopiness of the font provided the "belly" of my little doxie!   I just needed to draw in his back with a fine tipped pen, and voila!   He's colored in with Copics, keeping lighter towards the center to make the sentiment more visible.   I love finding ways to "stretch my stamps", but this card takes it to another level - ha, ha!!

  9. I was wondering if the stamp was really that long -- and you answered my question. You stretched it, for real! How creative and just perfect with the lighter coloring in the center so the sentiment would stand out. Just adorable!
