Top Dog

I always love to try to do Lauren Meador's Saturday Sketch and this card is for her sketch today. This stamp is a rubber stamp made from a photo of my dog, and it looks just like her! She was one of the winners in a pet star search Rubber Hedgehog had and I received this stamp made from her photo as a prize! If you've never been to their site, I highly recommend you do so. They have lots of realistic animal stamps, and their artist is unbelievable.
Anyway, for my card I stamped the image in black and embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored her with copics and then cut her out with a rectangle nestability. I left it in the die and rubbed some chalk around it. Then I cut out a scalloped die and mounted the image on that. The paw prints were stamped in black on a buff colored vellum and embossed with clear embossing powder. The paper with the "woof woof" on it is some scrapbook paper I had. I stamped and embossed the dog bones on some tan cardstock and cut them out and mounted them with some dimensionals and mounted the dog image and the words with dimensionals as well.

The dog bones are from All Night Media and the paw prints are from Stamp Craft. Here's the picture the stamp was made from so you can see how great the artist is.

Thanks for stopping!
