Humourous Pet

I've been inspired by a couple of challenges for this card:

The Paper Players' "Humorous" challenge.

And Less is More "Pets" challenge.

I don't do very many humourous cards but I do have the perfect stamp to combine these two challenges.

I love the sneaky little pup stealing the snowman's hat and scarf. It makes me think of my young dog, Tessa, who loves to steal socks and gloves!  And I love the look on the snowman's face when he sees what the dog has done.

It's a very quick and simple card, and nice and flat for mailing. Stamped, watercoloured, trimmed down and added to a red cardbase, and finished off with Stickles on the snowflakes and the lines of the snow.

Here's Tessa, looking very pleased with herself after stealing a pair of my socks:

And equally pleased to have snagged a pair of snowy gloves after we came in from a walk in the winter:

Note that I coloured the pup on the card in a similar colour to Tessa!  I love Penny Black's stamps that have the spaniel dogs!

Stamps - Penny Black snowman with dog, Rosie's Roadshow sentiment
Ink - Archival Jet Black
Paper - hot press watercolour paper, red cs
Size - 4.25x6.25"
Accessories - Gansai watercolour paints, Stickles
