Art Impressions Animal Print Challenge Week 2

Hello friends!  We are kicking off week 2 of Art Impressions Animal Print challenge!  For my inspiration card I've used the adorable Doggy Kisses set.  

Now, Dachshunds come in many colors but I chose to color this one similar to the one we had when I was growing up.  By the way, being the oldest of four, I got to name him.  Ready for it?  NOODLE!  LOL!  Noodle was a sweet and loyal dog that we loved!  I'm pretty sure I never saw him wrapped up like this one!

I stamped him onto Neenah 80# cardstock with a Copic safe ink.  I colored him with the Copics listed below.  I used a Double Stitched Oval die to cut it out.  I used two of the dies together to cut a little frame.

Next I used a mask I had saved from another project and covered the dog with it.  Then keeping the die on the cut oval, I used a cloud stencil and inked the sky and grass.  I used a green Copic marker to add detail to the grass.

I added the "animal print" portion to the background and kept it simple.  I stamped the paw from the set in a medium gray ink onto some gray cardstock and a piece of white cardstock.  I used my ruler and a Micron 05 pen to draw the black lines.

I stamped the sentiment in Weathered Wood Distress Oxide ink and cut it out with a die from the Tag Stitched dies.  The oval with the doggy is popped up on foam tape.

I hope my card has inspired you to join in the Animal Print challenge!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Stay crafty! :)
