In the Doghouse

It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! The sponsor this week is Patties Creations  and I used a digi set named "In the Dog House Again” on my DT card ." I colored the digi and extra leaves that I fussy-cut from the digi with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The sentiment, inspired by a meme I found on the web, is computer-generated. I hope it makes you chuckle. At least that was my plan!

I had fun making this card using a new digi from Ching-Chou Kuik named “Owlie.” When I saw it I remembered that I had a Martha Stewart punch that would work beautifully with the image. I printed the image onto kraft cardstock and colored beautiful woman with Spectrum Noir markers, a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen and an ultrafine black Sharpie. I wasn’t sure how to color the owl so did some google research and decided to color it using photos of a Great Gray Owl and Northern Hawk Owl as my guide. The flowers were punched from several shades of lavender. I adhered them to the digi with Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue then added a drop of Buttercup Liquid Pearls in their centers. The inside sentiment was upcycled from a card from a friend. I’m entering this card into several challenges including Double D’s- celebrating with some Punch (used the wonderful flower punch),  Ching-Chou Kuik’s New Year or New Beginnings (the digi and buttercup pearls are both new. I’ve had the punch in my stash for a few years, but this is the first time I’ve used it!) and Path of Positivity (Optional Twist is character traits. I love nature and working with details!)

  2. Wonderful card with patterned paper. Thanks for joining us at CHNC Patterned Paper Challenge this month.

  3. Wow your girl with the owl card is gorgeous, but you entered the dog card in the challenge instead of her LOL...unless I am reading this wrong, if so forgive me...anyhow it sure is beautiful!

    1. Thanks... you are correct, Diane! I just went back, deleted my oops and posted the one with punches to your blog.

  4. Your doghouse card is so cute and fun - and I love the sentiment too! Fantastic. Thanks so much for joining us at Jan's Digi Stamp Challenge.
    Love that girl image card too. Beautiful!

  5. Both cards are awesome but like Diane said, you shared the wrong card on your entry at DD. I LOVE how you've used this punch ... looks fabulous! (Hmmm think I have that punch will have to look in my stash ... love how you've created with it). Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Double D ‘Punches’ challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

  8. Love them both, Kathy! Great coloring. The dog house 'eyes' look so sad and tht inside sentiment is a hoot. lol For that one, let me put on a DT hat from Jan's and Thank you for playing along with us.
