It's A Dog's Life

the Mondays are prettier, dont't you think? 

Here we come then to make your Monday with a new challenge.
This week's theme is adorable and it's all about our four-legs friends!


Don't forget you can win a $50 voucher 
and spend it at the greatest Simon Says Stamp Store!

Here is my card made for my sweet friend who is struggling 
with her leg broken for almost two months now, 
It's a healing card saying "get better soon" in Polish. 
As she's the bigger dogs-lover that I know, it's perfect for her. 

Here are the steps for making this card:

1/2. Cut out pieces of TH Mixed Media die and adhere them 
with Gel Medium to the base, cover it all with White Gesso. 

3. Give some color with various shades of blue Distress Oxides.

4. Add more blues with Prima Oil Pastel Crayons.

5. Use Embossing Pen and SSS Steel Navy embossing powder 
and apply it randomly over the dies. 

6. Die-cut the base with Sizzix Postage Frame.
As I needed a square not a rectangle, 
I cut out a part of the frame and shortened it.

  2. I love this, Macarena! I kid you not, my grandfather built a dog house that looked exactly like this for our Beagle and German Shepherd when I was a little kid. It had a square door and the only difference was that it was brown. I love the little bone on the clothespin. It's such a fun little detail.
