Inkadinkado + Ellen Essentials: Puppy Sparkle Card

Inkadinkado Dog & Ellen Essentials Sparkle Card by Maria Byrd at CraftsyByrd.blogspot.com

Sparkle Pup is super sparkly card in person.  I purchased Inkadinkado Dogs as a discounted item last year.  For this card, I picked the tallest pup from the set and stamped it on a glittery Core'Dinations cardstock with Ranger Frayed Burlap ink.

Used a slightly wet small paintbrush to lightly color the image with Altenew Coral Berry, Ranger Dried Marigold and Ranger Forest Moss.  Edge was outlined in Inktense Bark.  Essentials by Ellen "Sparkle" sentiment stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and heat-embossed in silver.  Sequins from 28 Lilac Lane Shaker Mix Rose Garden glued on the eyes of the pup and around the sentiments.

Masked a strip on the right side and water-colored it with Inktense Poppy Red.  Wavy border and scrolls were drawn freehand with VersaMarker Watermark Pen and heat-embossed in silver.  (Hint: Use a flashlight to see where the clear ink is.)  I did the same technique on the pup's collar to make it stand out.  The glitters from the cardstock could be seen through the transparent pup and border! 

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
