My Sweet Petunia and Sugar Pea Swap Hop


 I am delighted to share my post with you for today's blog hop joining My Sweet Petunia with SugarPea Design Stamps. 
I will have more information on the hop and the prizes below, but first I would like to share the cards I made for today's hop.
The first card I am sharing with you is made with my Mini Misti and the Hot Diggity Dog stamp set. I started my card by applying the colour for my background with clarity brushes and die cutting with a stitched recangle die. 
 I then die cut the deckled circle and in my Misti arranged the doggies as I wanted and stamped with Intense Black ink, then proceeded to watercolour them with Zig brushes. I added the grass and sponged on some peacock feathers around the top edge then attached to my card on foam strips. I placed the card back in my Misti and stamped the sentiment. A heart from the set and a few sequins finished Hot Diggity Dog!
My second card is done using my Original Misti and the Quaker Stamp and Die Set. I arranged my scene in my Misti on 140lb watercolour paper and inked with embossing ink, embossing in white powder. (pardon my picture)
With distress inks I then water coloured the background and separately the ducks and another flower. Once my background was dry I sprinkled water on the card, giving it about 30 seconds to react with the distress inks, then attached the die cuts, and finished with my trademark sequins.

Now on to the Blog Hop
