Here's Scooter....

This weeks challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio is 'Cutting, cutting, cutting' and the gang want to see us use our cutting tools and do some fussy cutting. I've used my cricut to cut some swirly flourished to make a frame for Scooter, a gorgeous little doggy digi from Michelle's Etsy Store (you can find Scooter and his friends here)

I've used some brown Bazzil Bling card for the base and a layer of hessian which I've frayed. Scooter is coloured with promarkers (I've tried to give him a curly coat) and I've distressed the edges with my craft knife and Vintage Photo DI. The flourishes are also inked with DI. I added some little brass buttons and a foiled sentiment to finish off
 I'm also entering Scooter in the following challenges:
Rainbow Lady's Challenge: Icecream colours (well anyone who knows me will know that I love ALL icecream but this colour combo is  inspired by the huge bowl of double choc chip icecream I had last night YUM!!)
Penny's Papercraft Patch - #32 Something with a Dog (my first time entering this challenge)

Its bliss to get up on a Monday morning and not have to go to work :-)
Thanks for visiting  me and Scooter ;-)
