Humorous But Masculine Valentine

I wanted to create a valentine that would appeal to men and thought a cute "scene" card featuring two dogs trying to get together in a florist shop would be fun.  One dog is peering out over the window sill as the other dog is using a crate to try and climb inside.

Humorous Masculine Valentine
To create my scene, I combined the January 2019 My Monthly Hero kit with two pups from MFT's Lucky Dog stamp set.    I love both sets! First I created a background using Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil and Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Stone ink.  The stencil was not quite wide enough for the full card so I stenciled the right side and blended toward the middle, then stenciled the left side blending so that my A2 card was fully covered.  I think the bricks turned out well.

Next I stamped (on Xpress It paper), colored (with Copics) and die cut the images with my new Gemini Junior.  I then embossed the sentiment on the window.  Using foam tape, I adhered my scene to the background.
