I have to say this one was a bit of a struggle for me....I surprisingly don't have many animal stamp sets. Huh, who knew?! Anyway, I dug deep into my stash of retired stamps...see this is why I have trouble getting rid of any of them...and came up with this cutie:
Hot Diggity Dog is actually the same of this set and it's so cute! Lots of mix and match heads and bodies so you can create lots of different dogs. I kept this card on the masculine side because I realized it would be perfect for my BIL. He and my SIL adore dogs, have 5 of their own, and he is the director at the county humane society in their area. I think he will love this card! I took my colors from some retired DSP (it's actually Halloween paper!) and played around with Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, More Mustard and Basic Black. I stamped the dog in archival Basic Black and colored his sweater and nose with a More Mustard stampin' write marker. A little Smoky Slate grass, from the High Tide set, helps ground the dog and give him something to "sit" on.
Be sure to pop over to The Paper Players and check out all the inspiration from my lovely teammates! Maybe you will be inspired to join us before the challenge ends on Friday, June 8th at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
