I decided to do two challenges at once again. I had been planning to do Angel's Weekly Sketch challenge than I saw that over at JBWW, Sherry had issued a designer paper challenge. So, I figured, what the heck? I'll combine them. Easy peasy says I, right?
Well, I pulled out what I wanted to work with and set to work. Problem was, the DP I picked wasn't long enough for the strips on the side of this sketch.
So, I turned the card sideways. I sure hope that works for you, Angel. I did "faux" stitching with a silver gel pen and used my brand new photo corner punch for the sentiment part!! But if not, not to worry. I wanted to make two cards for these challenges anyway. :) So here's the second one!!
I really had fun with this one. The "stitching" is a stamp from my Thinking of You set. The paw prints I stamped were done in Handsome Hunter. I don't usually color, but I decided to with this one. I used my SU markers for the dog house and bow, then decided to do another bowl and put it on top for a little dimension. The picture's not very good, but the darker strip is actually a hunter green and the doghouse is Always Artichoke. The dog bowl and roof of the dog house is Real Red.
I didn't even realize I was doing it in Christmas colors also. So I guess I kinda' ended up with a non-traditional Christmas card, if I put a Merry Christmas sentiment inside. Right now they're both blank inside. Very useful that way!
