A black lab



Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Susan would like to see 'Cats and Dogs. Our sponsor is Digistamp Boutique and Sizzix.

It had to be my black lab for this card, the card is one of a batch I made for a relative and labs had to feature. I stamped the Penny Black village scene, used a mask and Pan Pastels for the sky, added a little colour to be buildings and lots of snow glitter to the foreground, finally stamping the lab into place who for the avoidance of doubt is called George.

Happy weekend all.

Gosh Brenda...this is such a beautiful scene. I have not seen that Penny Black stamp before...it is a lovely one. I managed to pick up a few PB stamps in the half off sales at my local stores. With two stores within walking distance of me, they always havegood sales.
I may just have to see if they could order that one in for me!!!

The black lag is a great addition for a lab owner...bet they loved it.
