You Had Me At Woof

Anyone who is a dog lover/owner can appreciate this card; I know our dog Colby had us at "woof."  I decided to use Claire Keay's You Had Me At Woof stamp set from MFT for this week's (#40) Sketch Challenge with MFTWSC on Splitcoaststampers.com. 

The stamp set is adorable - of course, anything with dogs captures my heart - & it sort of "morphed" into a holiday card.  Maybe one to give the dog, or the dog to give to its human family...  & yes, OF COURSE the dog gets a card at the holidays - he's family!  =o)

Here's the sketch to follow for week #40:
And now here's my cr8'ion:
MFTWSC #40 - You Had Me At Woof
MFTWSC #40 - You Had Me At Woof (image detail)

I stamped the image using Tim Holtz' Distress Ink in Old Paper.  Once colored in with my Copics, the image appears softer - almost like a watercolor effect. I really liked how simply changing the ink color of the stamped image offered a new, refreshing take on this card.  Her overcoat was paper-pieced using the same paw-print paper which was used for the card's inside; the coat & hat are accented with matte accents.  I went with matte finish, because I didn't want it to "compete" with those twinkling snowflakes.  LOL

Thanks for stopping by to see today's card cr8'ion.

Happy Cr8'ing!
