Things with legs take 2

After submitting the insect card, I decided that it was a bit OTT, so for a simpler card I made this one




I used a cream card from my stash and stamped it with SU Tailgating in black Archival ink. I then used watercolours and pencils to colour it in and a white gel pen for the white poodle so it would show up ( not that you can see it very well in my photo). With my RA I'm not very good using the roller so I removed the rubber,stuck on some Easymount so it would cling to my ruler ( an idea poached from Vicky,Thanks Vicky, see her brilliant blog here).This was finished off with a Woodware sentiment.

I'm happier with this card,what do you think?

  4. I actually use the SU wheel guides... I could never stamp in a straight line otherwise, but your method worked just fine!
    Love the image!
    Thanks so much

  6. This is a fabulous card - I love the image and you've coloured it beautifully! Thanks for the mention Bev - I have to say, the unmounted wheels work brilliantly as stamps and are pretty good value too! Vx
