OLW 55, It's a dog!

Hello there and welcome, Today is Wednesday and that means it's a new OLW number 55 to be prescise and Jennifer say's
 OLW55: Cats and Dogs
Make a one layer card with a dog or a cat on it (or both).
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.
2. Make a one-layer card with a cat or a dog on it (or both).

3. Please share your creation by posting your card online and then using  Inlinkz below to link to it.

This card involved some masking techniques, I have seen many people do this but I think the first was Barbara Gray at Clarity Stamps fantastic inspiration and wonderful brayering techniques.
The stamp dog is from Poppy Stamps in America, gorgeous but simple stamps and the trees are Memory Box, Swirly Trees. The sentiments from a Waltzingmouse, set and are brilliant!
I masked and stamped then coloured with Copics, you can find them everywhere and I'm fed up with doing links!!!!
Have a lovely day and have fun with your stamping everyone TTFN :0)

I love your style, you use 'cute' images but manage to not make them look 'too cutesy' (if you know what I mean!) Your colouring s fab. xx

I don't know if your dog stamp and the sentiment came together but your have matched them perfectly. He looks so wistful. Great CAS layout.
