Unlikely Pair!

These cards were created as part of a challenge I do with a group of friends on SCS. This week our challenge was supplied by Cammie, she sent us all some images of this adorable dog with the little bird on its head and the verse which accompanies the image. These images are part of the new released Carolyn King Design stamps sold through Gina K. We could do whatever we liked with the images. Cammie had also sent me these two images when she sent me some of her stamps to make sample cards, so I used my stamp rather than the stamped images as that gave me more options.

My first card I created I decided to use Beate's weekend sketch #19 which was last weeks sketch challenge. I also added bone buttons and fire hydrant as embellishments.


I decided to create a second card for this challenge, one was all we needed to do but I did also want to create a scene with the dog image. I stamped the dog, masked it and then stamped the dog house. This was then also masked ands the background trees were added and then the grass in various colors of inks. The dog/bird were then stamped a second time on scrap card, colored and cut out and attached over the first image using foam tape.
