Give a dog a bone

I'm posting this happy little card for last weeks Stampotique Designers challenge (stencils)... they only have one inlinkz per month, so does that mean it's ok to post all month long? I guess I'm about to find out. In any case, I'm not late for the Craft Barn weekly challenge (bunting) and the Country View May challenge (Simply scenic).

I made the background by creating a subtle resist effect using a TCW stencil: placed paper on top of stencil and rubbed with a white wax crayon all over it, then painted with green mica watercolour. The doggy was stamped on the background and on a separate piece of paper, where I coloured it with Distress markers. I had these lovely tiny scraps of sprayed linen left over from a previous project, and used them to make a scruffy bunting... Love that texture! Stitched all over with my sewing machine and added the fussy cuts with foam tape. Can't help smiling when I look at this :)
