Dog Days of Summer

Hi there 🙂 I was playing around with some of my dies, and came up with this super simple card background. A simple white die cut over a pretty blue leaves a world of opportunities for a card!! I had this super cool dog with sunglasses printed up, and figured he was perfect for this. The image is an older image from Twistoon (so old it was still labelled under the old name of Bloobel!!) I can’t find him in the store anymore, but saw a few other images that caught my eye!! I colored him up with my Copics, then fussy cut him out. To add a bit of jazz to his sunglasses, I pulled out this iridescent paint that I got a while back, and painted a layer over the lenses.

After placing the dog on the card with some foam dots, I die cut a sun, and popped it on with some foam as well. I dug out one of the off cuts of the background die, and stamped a sentiment on it, then gave it some dimension by placing it with foam like the other elements. A quick and fun summer birthday card….done in a jiffy!!

I’d like to enter this in the following:

As You Like It Challenge – Favorite – Plain or Patterned paper? I like using plain paper, because it lets the image really pop!
