Whimsy Stamps Guest Designer

Hi Stampers!!

I was lucky enough to have been chosen as a Guest Designer for this week's challenge at Whimsy Stamps! This week the theme is Masculine cards. I have to say that I find these one of my most challenging themes! Here is what I came up...

For my card I used the Whimsy Stamps Crissy Armstrong Digi called In The Doghouse. Pretty fitting for a "Masculine" card, huh? LOL! I printed the image out 3 times so I could layer the dog, flowers and grass to make it look 3D. I also popped the little bone on the house after adding some metal wire. I colored this with copic markers. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye and my embossing folder is a paw print one that is from the Sizzix Bears line. Not for sure exactly what it s called. I had to sponge everything with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. I love this stuff!

Here is a closer peek at Tim  the little doggie!

Check out my doggie eyebrows! I added a little bit of liquid applique then puffed it up, colored it with copics, then took my pointy scissors and kind of made little "pokes" in the applique to make it look textured and kind of furry! All the sentiments that I used are from There She Goes Stamps. I hope that I have inspired you to play along at Whimsy Stamps this week!  I want to thank them for having me as a Guest Designer this week!
