Paws to Remember

This stamp set is part of my "Rainbow Bridge" series and is called "Paws to Remember".  I'm honored that it was chosen as the very first Whimsy Stamps CAS set.  I know that most of us stampers think of CAS as meaning Clean and Simple cards but at Whimsy Stamps CAS is all about YOU and stands for Customer Appreciation Stamp set.
You can get this 4x6 clear stamp set for FREE and a full month before it releases for general sale when you spend $75 or more at Whimsy Stamps.  

I used Distress Inks with two different techniques to watercolor both of these cards.  But before I did any coloring I used painters tape to mask off a 1/4" all the way around the card that has a white border.  For both cards I used a copic multiliner marker to extend the hills all the way to the edges.

For the deep color saturation on the grass and trees I first sponged the color onto the dry watercolor paper then I used a wet paint brush to push the color around to where I wanted it. For the sky I wet the watercolor paper first then added color with a wet paintbrush for a softer, less saturated look.

Once dry I stamped the dogs and the sentiments and lastly I used a wet paintbrush to add ink for the shadows. 
Sneak peek alert! The sentiment immediately above is a sneak peek of my June Rainbow Bridge release called "Irreplaceable".
