Hurray! I've got my first Copics....have to practice and learn how to use but thought I'd give it a try in this card. The dog did not seem to mind being a guinea pig. Inspired by a few challenges for this one:
Going Grey with Scrap Creations: Challenge is to use at least 3 embellishments, and of course Basic Grey paper. Again, is that 3 embellies or 3 types embellies?
Limelight Papercrafts: Use their sketch shown to the right and try to incorporate some RHINESTONES or GEMS!! I like the sketch from Limelight but rhinestones did not fit into my MAN card.
I printed the dog image and yes, I colored it with COPICS!
I cut the image out with a circle die and edged with distress ink. I printed the sentiment on the computer using a digital sentiment from Raindrops Echo Designs, a freebie last week on Sentimental Sunday. I used 3 papers from Basic Grey for the layout- a stripe, a print, and a distressed solid. Played it safe and used 3 different types of embellishments. Added a bone ribbon and 3 brads. For the 3rd embellishment, I made my own bone cutting it out of brown CS and covering it with Matte Accents. Attached with pop up dots. Isn' t this a dog gone cute card!!
Also going to enter into:
Stamp TV Color Challenge: Carla's challenge is to use aqua and red and if you need to add a little bit of an accent color or a neutral, go for it. This card may be stretching it for this challenge but colors are mostly red with aqua and rest are all neutral colors??? Speedy Cat's Friends Challenge: Claudine's challenge is to make a masculine card.

My DH helped with the choice of papers and the choice of colors for the dog. He even searched out some photos of hounds for reference. I have never been around dogs that much but he had dogs as pets and even used to be in the dog food business . Let me know how you like my doggie.
