This is the first time I’ve participated in a My Favorite Things sketch challenge (Sketch 418). I have to say, it was harder than I anticipated it to be! I don’t usually plan a layout before I start putting things together – I prefer to wing it! So I kept finding myself wanting to deviate from the sketch! But in the end, I was able to get something put together that resembles the sketch! 🙂
The pup is from MFT Canine Companions stamp set. I stamped him with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut him out with the coordinating die.
I colored him using E31, E35, E37, and E39. I used RV34 and RV11 for his ears.
I used the Playful Messages sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.
I used the sentiment dies from SSS to cut out and the sentiment.
I had purchased this paper from Michaels when it was on sale at the end of summer! I love a good deal!
I rounded the edges with this Fiskars punch.
I used this heart background stamp (SSS) with Picked Raspberry distress oxide.
I used a Stitched circle die and then a starburst stencil to create a background for my puppy.
I added black ink around the edge of the circle and “stitched” look with the R11 marker to the sentiment banner.
I used double sided tape for the patterned paper and 3D adhesive for the sentiment, circle, and puppy.
I added finishing touches with the Nuvo drops and Gelly pen.
That wasn’t so hard! Ha Ha!
