Hello, everyone, welcome to a brand new Crazy 4 Challenges! Since this week is National Hog Dog Week (who comes UP with this stuff???) Joanne is challenging us to include some kind of picnic connection on our projects.
I do not have any sets that have a picnic theme so I had to wing it ;-) I went with an actual dog in the shape of a hot dog, LOL! Plus, I used red check paper for the cushion inside his dog house. How’s that for thinking outside the box? Works for me!
I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, applied a watercolor wash to Ranger Watercolor paper with Peerless Watercolors and a waterbrush, and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape. I added Radiant Sun Die-namics, cut from Sunshine card stock, Puffy Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, Grassy Hills Die-namics, cut from Sour Apple card stock and Gumdrop Green card stock, some popped up on foam for dimension.
Dog House Die-namics was cut from Wild Cherry card stock, Gravel Gray card stock, Sweet Tooth card stock, and the cushion stamped with BB Cool Cat and fussy cut out. The dog image is from Top Dog and Top Dog Die-namics, stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers, and popped up on foam.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
