Greetings friends. Today the IO challenge theme is "anything goes." Yeah! Don't you love seeing where the creative mood takes you?
For me, I wanted to play with two of the new IO dogs. Aren't they sweet? You could use it for a Valentine, but it works just fine to let someone know that you care.
To make the card, I stamped the two dogs with black Versafine ink onto 140lb watercolor paper. Then I colored the dogs with Zig Clean Color brush markers and softened the markers with a waterbrush. Once the dogs were dry, I added some color around the dogs and under the dogs as a shadow. I wanted to let the dogs dry first so that the markers wouldn't bleed into each other.
To finish the card, I added a sentiment from a clear set and some "patterned" papers I made using some Cover a Card backgrounds.
Silly Dog C15123 (the one with his tongue hanging out)
Sweet Dog D15124 (heart on the nose)
Saying- from the Warm Fuzzies CL492 set (I'm sorry. I think it has been discontinued)
