Whipper Snappers Doggy Pile

Hi there. I am back today with a really old stamp of mine that I love! It dates back to the times when you could only get wood mounted stamps and it comes from Whipper Snappers. Sadly, as this is an American company these stamps are quite card to get hold of, and I am not sure if you can even get them anymore so this really is a little treasure for me.
When I first got this stamp, alcohol markers weren't on the scene so I used Tombows to colour my images, but of course these days we have lots of amazing mediums to use and I managed to get a much more vibrant effect using my Spectrum Noirs.

I don't know if you can tell from the close up but these lovely little chaps are decoupaged. It was a little bit time consuming but so worth it in the end, especially as this was a special card for my dad!

My backing papers are the perfect match and are digital papers from NitWits, in what i would call muted autumnal colours.

Finally, I decided that the background behind the dogs was too white so I dulled it down with a touch of distress ink, and random dots using a Stamps by Judith stubby.

Hope you like my card for today.

Thanks for stoping by!
