I embossed and sponged the woodgrain background, punched the bottom edge, embossed the sentiment and die cut balloon dog, made a tissue paper banner using a fringe die, and added enamel dots.
I first stamped the circle (Dina Wakley stamp) onto the background and embossed with gold embossing powder (by Lindy´s Stamp Gang). I then used various Distress Ink colours to create the background and then added some water splatters here and there. I really like the effect it creates. After that I stamped the bird (by Viva Las VegaStamps) with black dye ink and colored it with markers. In the end the feathers got a little glitter glue treatment.
