Inking with Dog

Hello Friends 
  Well I finally frame my lovely "Dog Flowers" Brett and I help Shadow with the ink pad last May and took the flower to Nika so she could add the leaves well I got my print way back and this summer just been crazy but last week I was missing the boy so I finish my frame and now I can have the lovely memories on my desk. I will see him again next week and then in Sept will drive him back to Texas well when it cool off a little :) so more likely at the end of Sept. Many ask me how he is doing well to be honest he is doing better now then he was a year ago so time will tell, 15 months ago they give him one to two months well let me tell you that shadow have a different plan then the doc so yes we call him the miracle dog.

Now I bet you are wondering what kinda of ink we use. Simple I use my Stampin'Up! classic ink, took shadow paw, tab tab on the ink pad then into the watercolor paper. We did this outside so just took the water hose to rinse is paw and let him walk on the grass. Will it damage my ink pad NO just a little dirt that I wipe off. We did 3 set in the picture below you can see the Pumpkin Pie and the Perfect Plum we did one in tempting Turquoise but for some reason it is not in the picture. 
Now if you have a fur baby I encourage you to try this it make a lovely frame plus very special memories. 

 Here are my 2 master for this piece of art, Shadow did the lovely paw flower and sweet Nika finish the flower with the greenery. I think they deserve a big round of applause!!!!!! *this picture of these 2 was way back in 2004 so they both age a little since that time but both still my little one. 

 Here a few picture on my sweet fur baby and yes I had to put a few picture of the other two kiddos of mine. 

Well my Friends this is it for now till next time Happy Stamping!

  1. Well, isn't this a precious way to preserve the memory of your beloved fur babies!! I just love it. I would like to make one for my daughter with her fur baby's paw print. I am guessing you used the new style ink pads? What did you use for the center of the flowers, Frenchie?? This is just a super project! Thanks for sharing your keepsake AND the family photos.

  2. This is a nice way to keep a memory of your family's fur baby . Shadow seems to have been a special friend to you all . Thanks for sharing the pictures .

  3. Ah, I'm so glad he is your miracle dog, he is so cute with his gray on his face, he reminds me of my black lab, Sammy girl, love my labbies!! You give the sweet fellow a big hug from me!!

  4. Well, how neat! I have a 15 year old Westie, so his days may be numbered. He doesn't hear or see well & sleeps a lot. There are times, however, when he acts like he's still a puppy. Westies are all white, so the ink will really show on his white paw fur. I know Stampin' Up ink is washable & I could do this in my laundry room where I have a utility tub to wash off his paw. Great pictures & a great memorial when that time comes. Thanks for sharing!
