Puppy Love

When I lamented a few weeks ago that Pixie Pink was being retired because it was my 'Luana' colour, Stacey recommended Melon Mambo as the replacement. Great minds must think alike {GRIN} as I had been contemplating that replacement not long before I wrote that post. Anyway, here is my first Luana project with her 'new' colour, and it's using Stacey's latest Curtain Call Colour Challenge and the latest Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge being hosted by Kirsty this week.
Flowers were a given this week, and the colours matched beautifully with the dress Luana is wearing in the photo. She's holding Angus who was only a couple weeks old at the time - he's the puppy of a friend's dog and Luana LOVED him and his siblings. We can't have a dog here though as we're renting...
The page hasn't photographed as well as I'd hoped - sorry, but here's a close up of the big flower:
Lots of layers and rock'n rolling. Such a fabulous, easy technique. This was the first time I have inked up my new Vintage Vogue stamp set AND used the clear mount stamps - they are fabulous!! I'm a huge fan. The eyelet border punch detail also matched the edging on Luana's dress.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!



Stamps: Vintage Vogue (Autumn Winter Mini), Tidy Alphabet (retired), So Very (retired)
Card: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
