A Perfect Time To Craft Challenge - February 2023 Sponsors - CraftsUPrint

Time for another challenge!

This month we're being sponsored by 


I'm sharing my Design Team inspiration card using the dog image titled, "Doris."  Everyone who knows me knows about my love for animals, especially dogs.

This time around I went with a simple card, using blue and white card stock.  As usually when there's fur or hair involved I'll be fussy cutting slivers to make it look like real hair/fur.  

I ran a piece of card stock with a no name brand embossing folder of paws, after which I used a distress tool to scrap the edges and then inked all around it.

Used Copic Markers, C1, C2, C4, C7, C10

Distressed Inks: Stormy Sky & Black Soot

Embellished with miniature Dog bowls and a bag of dog.

Glitter glue was my choice of adhesive, I also used pop dots to raise the image a bit.
