Pawprints for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

The inspiration for this card was one of the stamps in Leonie's Inky Notes set - it looks like a pawprint. The sentiment was lurking somewhere in long-term storage in my brain so I've no idea where it came from, but it was perfect for what I had in mind.

I did the wording on my computer using the font "Mister Sirloin BTN Rare" then just printed it onto white card and cut it up, finishing off with my usual trick of going round all the edges with a black fineliner pen.

I cut the Funky Heart Base from black card and the Interlocking Love Overlay from white card. The pawprints are stamped over the inner part of the die-cut with black Memento ink. I left the outer part white and entwined it with the black heart before sticking it all down onto Kraft card.

I masked off most of the card with some paper and stamped the pawprint all over the bottom to make a border. One of Tim Holtz's mini crazy dogs stamped onto Kraft card finishes it off.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
