Anniversary / Wedding - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I'm a little short of time as I spent way too long playing in my craft room so I'll get straight down to business!

& this week our challenge is

Impression Obsession logo

This week I have chosen to feature Impression Obsession I Ruff You cling stamp & I decided to stamp & also reverse stamp the cute image as it's something I haven't done in a long time & I thought having two dogs together would look even cuter.
I heat embossed the cute dogs with Versamark inkNuvo white embossing powder & then coloured them with my copics. I masked both the images off and created a background using Simon's lovely Mosaic Heart Stencil and a selection of Simon's inks, Sea Glass Blue, Audrey Blue, Island Blue, Surf Blue, Blue Violet, & High Dive. As the heart looked so beautiful and vibrant I was worried that the white embossed images wouldn't show up enough against the vivid colours so I popped my masks & stencil back in place and used Simon's White ink pad to soften the colours by blending it over the whole stencil & I added a couple of  Crystal Drops to the dogs eyes and a few sequins to embellish. 
The sentiment is from Simon's Tilted Banner Sayings stamp set and I have stamped it in black ink and die cut it using Simon's Tilted Banner dies.

The copic colours I've used are -
C6, C3, C1, C00 / B23, B21, B41 / R85, R83, R81 / YR23, YR21, YR20
