Twisted Thursday #13 & a BONUS


Who Let the DOGS out
TWISTED THURSDAY #13

1st let's CONGRATULATE
MARIA
for winning last weeks challenge


I was so excited to get to play around with one of the brand new images that Shirley's 2 Girls is going to be carrying. Just in time to create those much needed GRADUATION cards. Is he not adorable or what? One of the 6th grade students at my school wanted a very special card for her sister that is graduating from high school. High school students do NOT want take a second look at those boring ole' store bought cards. Have you ever seen them? They rip into the envelope and shake the card to see what falls out. Hopefully this card will get a second look!!!


This weeks Twist is is to use Paper Piecing!! I stamped my image twice. Once onto Very Vanilla cardstock, which is the one that I colored the dog and stars using my Copics. Second onto a Patterned paper, which I cut out only the background and created a Wall Paper. I used Copics right onto the pattered paper and created a shadow to give my Grand Dog some more dimension, as well as, colored the hat. After cutting the entire image out, I used thick foam squares to really Pop that Puppy up!

This image is "Grand Dog" SG 615 is available NOW over on the What's New Page of Shirley's 2 Girls!!!

Justine, this is super cute. I love how you did that background and that dog! I have to learn to use Copics. I'm still hesitant to jump in the trend. We'll see this summer. Have a good weekend.
