Doghouse Blues

 I had so much fun playing the Hambo Hoedown last week, that I couldn't wait to play again!  This week the challenge is to use their digi "Doghouse Blues" your card design.and also use a dog tag, charm, or bone in your card design.

See the artistic looking dog bone gracing the doghouse?  That's a SWMS exclusive - drawn by me!  LOL!  I drew it on a scrap piece of paper, cut it out and hung it on the dog house in a place of honor!

 I created this scene by first using an oval scallop stencil, sponge, and ink to create a partly cloudy sky.  Then I decided where the dog house was going to go and began stamping the grass.  This was stamped with the grass image from Because of You (SU), multiple times before each re-inking.  (See how I stamped some blades of grass on the digi, so when it was glued in place the grass was overlapped?  Genius!  LOL!  The sun (D.O.T.S.) minus the smiling face (after all, the dog is missing you!) was stamped on light yellow card stock and placed in the corner.

The sentiment was added so it looked like the dog's thoughts.  Aaaah, sweet!

The digi image from Hambo Stamps was colored in with Copics.  The card base is PTI white, the sentiment was layered on Not Quite Navy (SU)

Off to stamp some more!
