Pure enjoyment. That is what I felt as I put this card together. It was just plain fun! And turned out way better than I anticipated - a bonus!
I started off with this cute dog by Meljen Designs:
but I wanted him looking over a fence. I cut out two different fences and didn't like either one so I used a piece of photo designer paper of rocks. After coloring him, I fussy cut him out but even with the Doodle Pantry sky paper, it was too plain so I stamped some trees using a Stampin Up rubber stamp and colored in some grass with a Copic. I couldn't figure out how to use the sentiment on the digital image so I cut out a "hello" with the Silhouette.
I ended up using so many techniques and mediums:
Silhouette cutting out hello
Cuttlebug cutting out the front grass - YNS die
SU stamp and brown ink
And see that TINY little heart by the "hello". Can you believe I fussy cut that? I am so happy that I still have that much flexibility in my fingers.
So that is how my card evolved. Here is the sketch I used:
I don't think I will be making any more cards exactly like this. However, now that I have all the bugs worked out, maybe I will!
