Mo's Challenge #145

Who Let  the Dogs Out?!

We did, of course! The theme of Mo's Challenge this week is "In the Dog House", so doing something having to do with dogs, using one of Mo's fantastic images, is your mission.
I've chosen to use "Guilty Rocco" for my card. I think we've all seen that contrite look an a dog's face before....."Did you do that? Bad doggie!"
I don't know what he's done, but he's begging for forgiveness!

I had fun making this card! I did some things I haven't done for quite some time...I used eyelets and an actual stamp! I stamped the fire hydrants, colored them with Copics,  and used Versa Mark and clear embossing powder to give them a shine.
Since I had no 'doggie' embellishments, I decided to  make a dog collar. I cut  a piece of CS the right size to fit an SU! ribbon buckle, ran it through a crimper, added some eyelets (I had to remember how to set them!), and was done. I'm pleased with the result.
  The brown paper that the DP is mounted on is a light-weight cardboard used to separate layers of cat food in a box. I liked the color and texture of it!

Inside: "Please forgive me!"

Mo's Challenge #143

You Should be Dancing!

Mo's Challenge this week is "Singing and Dancing", and Mo has so many images that could be used!

I've used "Mary Tapping" on my card. I just love her exuberance! There is a newer version of her in Mo's shop.


I did something a little different with the image this time. It's a twist on the 'Out-of-the Box' technique. After printing and coloring the image, I cut her arms, legs, and skirt partially away from the panel. Then I used Nestibilities dies to cut an oval in the DP and to make a frame out of red CS. I placed the image panel behind the frame and brought the cut away parts through the opening so that she looks as though she's jumping out of the frame. I like the effect!

Images: "Mary Tapping" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Sentiment from SU!s Warm Words stamp

Tools: Copics, Fine black marker, Cuttlebug with Nestibilities ovals, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set

Papers: SU! Daffodil, Real Red, Garden Green, Neenah smooth white, Bearly Mine Designs DP

Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Lace, Flowers (WOC)

So get on your dancing shoes, use your best singing voice, and make a card or project using one of Mo's great images for a chance to win a gift certificate to Mo's store!

Start the music!
