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! :)
