I was thrilled when Jo asked me last January if I'd be willing to be a guest elf for her wonderful Christmas Kickstart Challenge. Of course I said yes.
The cue for this challenge is Dashund through the Snow.
Any festive Christmas themed canine will do for the challenge.
I have one set of dog stamps (my others are dogs and cats together). So I took what I like to think of as the Golden Retriever or Labrador sized dog from Tim Holtz's crazy dogs and made a scene. I think his expression is guilt ridden...as if he'd knocked down the Christmas wreath while racing round the house.
I blended on some olive toned ink on the left side of the cardbase to add some interest to the background. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the pup, and adhered him to the card with foam tape. Then I used Lawn Fawns wreath die cut and wrapped it under his foreleg. The sentiment comes from Tim Holtz as well and was white heat embossed on midnight green paper.
I hope to see you in the gallery! Thanks so much for visiting.
