I started with the sketch from a new blog I've discovered over at Paper craft Crew,
then the yummy doughnut
colours at Less is More
Putting the two together I made this mad dog card
I know what you're thinking?................DOGS?, PINKS and ORANGES??? Well, let me try to explain my madness. The sketch made me think of dissecting one continuous scene, so so far so good. ( The stamp actually comes on a roller, but with my Arthritis I struggle to get the roller in a straight line, so I've peeled the rubber off the roller and added some EZ-Mount onto the back. I then use a ruler as a stamp block, and it's much easier to handle ). Then, when I choose my four colours and tested them on cream card instead of white, and using an Aqua painter to spread the ink, they didn't look so bright?
Have a look and see what you think
Anyway, I'm sure some girly girls out there have got a blush pink Poodle or Dachshund. (The fluffy bits on the poodle were coloured directly with the Write Marker so the hue is more intense ). Once the scene was coloured I cut it into five squares and layered them onto squares of cream card that had had the edges coloured with orange. The first square is flat on the card base, and the others are raised on 3D pads. The sentiment was added using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and Post It Notes so it could be stamped in a wavy line instead of a three lined block.
