Snarky Dog Cards - Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release

Good evening! Super excited tonight to begin sharing the first of my cards made with the BRAND NEW Sending Sunshine Release from Simon Says Stamp! This release is full of incredible stamps, dies, and more - but the first thing I saw when I opened my package was the HILARIOUS Playful Messages stamp set - and I couldn't wait to play with them! These funny sentiments needed the perfect images, and I just knew I had to pull out my Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs Stamp set for the perfect pairing! Here are the 5 cards I made: 

These are also completely one layer cards! I pretty much just took my time coloring the images once I paired up the right dog with the right sentiments. I used my MISTI to stamp so that I could double stamp for a nice dark and crisp image. Once all the coloring was finished, I added not ONE, but TWO coats of Tonic Crystal Glaze to the eyes, nose, tags, and occasional tooth or tongue - letting the first layer dry several hours before applying the second layer. This added just a little something special to each card while still keeping them one layer! Here is a closer look at each one showing that detail on them:

So - what about you? Do you like funny sentiments like this on cards? What images would you like to pair them with?!?!? Or which card is your favorite? I'd love to hear!!!
