Tammy

 

My beloved Golden Retievers name was Tammy, her kennel club name was Tamara Anwen.Tammy was born in Wales and Anwen means very beautiful, which she was. Of course Tammy is also a song famously sung by Debbie Reynolds in the Tammy films.

I printed the music onto some canvas paper and heat embossed some heart balloons and the word Love, in a marbling pink embossing powder. Tammy used to love ballooons and she could hold them in her mouth without bursting them! I edged the paper with pink and brown inks.

 

Both the Dog and Angel are wooden stamps and must be well over 10 years old! I stamped the wings on vellum and embossed them with white embossing powder, and fussy cut both the wings and doggie.I watercoloured the doggie.

I sat Tammy on some white net and added lots of beads and sequins onto the netting and background. 
I adhered a strip of fabric lace at the bottom and rolled up some of the lace to form a flower, and popped a little pink button in the middle.

Thank you so much for visiting.

I would love to enter this into the following challenges.

Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens

 
I made this card especially for the current challenge at Fashionable Stamping This months theme is to use the first verse from  "My Favourite things" from The Sound of Music. Of  course ever since reading this I  have been singing that song - luckily for everyone else I have only been singing it in my head!

"Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things"

I thought about what stamps and whatnots I had  to fit in with the theme. I decided to use a Kraft card for the brown paper packages, and tied a raffia ribbon for the string. For the raindrops I used a versamarker pen on a raindrops stencil, and then followed with clear embossing powder. I don't often emboss as I am unable to reach the electric plug, but someone put it on for me today, so I embossed away! I used a cat stamp for whiskers on kittens, and a window outlooking onto a rainy day. I drew a vase and a rose, to encompass the rose in the song.I added a "Happy Rainy Day" sentiment at the bottom.

It is a bit of an unusual card but my Mum is a Sound of Music fan, and she said she would like it!
