Puppy Love

I was so excited to see the challenge over at Blog-a-Doodle this week which is 'Pets' , you get to choose one of Lynne's gorgeous images to work with and one of them was a German Shepherd. As I am lucky enough to have 2 german shepherds it was an easy choice for me and here is the card I've made

The image is printed on to printable acetate, Lynne's images are wonderful to work with and all I needed to do with this one was glitter the back with chantilly lace sprinkle and sparkle glitter - a perfect GSD colour lol.  I made the background using some cream textured card and created some hills using sepia versafine ink and then sprayed them with golden dubloons moonshadow ink before distressing the edges. I made the sky using bucaneer bay blue moonshadow ink - the first time I've tried that and I'm really pleased with the effect. The sentiment is stamped again with sepia versafine using a paper artsy alphabet. As the challenge at Tuesday Taggers is Step out of your Comfort Zone, I decided to try some stitching on my card. I love to see it but can never be bothered - I can see why now as it took me ages lol, I do like the finished result though.  I attached the dog with some silicone glue and then made a 'lead' from brown ribbon, a couple of brads and a charm from my stash and attached it to some more inked/stitched card to support the easel.
I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
Sophisticat: a colour challenge, blue, brown and cream
Papertake Weekly Challenge: shiny, sparkly and special
Cards for men: The great outdoors
