SSS163/Pin12 - "You say B*itch

likes it's a bad thing!!"

Yes! An afternoon post!!!  I was making a card for the {PIN}spirational #12 challenge and I needed a sketch. I found the Sweet Stop Sketch#163, but the challenges closes at 6pm tonight! So, I had to post it ASAP!  The additional challenge for Sweet Stop is to use textures.

A few of the 45 cards I made for last weekend's fundraiser uses this MFT poodle and the sentiment. One of the Board members requested one of them, so I had to remake it, but do more than a one-layer quickie.

After stamping the poodle, I used my black glossy accents to color in her 'puffs'  In real life the dimension is pretty cool.  I used my Hero Arts chevron stamps on the background and embossed it on the black panel too.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  I added some 'bling' for more 'texture'.  Oh, and I used some orange twine for her leash and collar!

Here's the 'inspiration' picture:

And here's the sketch:

It's SO HOT here in CT!!!!  Spending the afternoon in the a/c was the best thing to do!!!

Oh.........and if you want to see what I was part of this morning..........we had a 'photo shoot' for the dogs and cats at CT Humane in Westport who are up for adoption.  I went to Michael's and bought a bunch of props and I assisted while one of the employees took the pictures!  How fun!!  (The pics were low resolution - sorry I couldn't make them bigger - but you'll get the gist!)







I'll be back with another post tomorrow :)

Thanks for your visit!
