Good morning folks.
It's time for a brand new challenge at Cardz4Guyz. This time the theme is:-
THINGS WITH TAILS
Lots to get your teeth into with this, lots of animals, birds or even airplanes would fit the bill but for my card I chose puppy dogs. Do you remember the little rhyme, What are little boys made of? Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails!
I also chose it as the very last Twofer Challenge is to feature a Dog or Cat.
Here's my first card using the MFT set Little Buddies.
I steered away from a simple birthday card and went for a more get well or just a cheer up sort of vibe. If you are a dog person I think the sentiment says it all.
The puppy on the left was stamped using the mirror technique where you stamp an image onto the back of a larger stamp, then stamp that onto your card. It takes a bit of practise but it's worth the effort. Any missing edges were added back with a black fine liner.
So after stamping, colouring with Copics and fussy cutting, I arranged the elements onto an A4 panel of DP that I found in my stash. The DOGS part was cut from a scrap of white card using an Altenew alphabet die set and the sentiment below is part of one which came with the set but the You part was masked off before stamping with Versamark and embossing with white EP on black.
As its for the Twofer challenge, I needed another card using the same stamp but in a different design and for a different occasion.
This card uses the same stamped elements but put into some frames and a sentiment from another MFT set, Birth-Yay.
The frames were made by die cutting kraft card using some really old scalloped dies, which I cut away the center of with dies for the small ones and fussy cut the middle oval because my matching oval die was too small! The backgrounds were coloured with Copic markers and the little fussy cut puppies added, the larger image was done in much the same way, trimming away the excess.
All the elements were added to a white linen effect base card, including 3 brads from
which the pictures hang. The central oval frame was popped up over pads but the others were glued flat.
Here are both my designs together. It's sad that Darnell has felt the need to stop this fun challenge but I was determined to enter the last one, even if I am a little near to the wire!!
