A Dog's Day sketch

This week, Team B (the sketch team) for MyGrafico Challenges, is working with the following sketch and digi stamp set:


































I've been wanting to work with a dog related set and this one has a little bit of everything for the dog lover!
I decided to keep my card simple and let my puppy act as a supporting actor .... I guess I have Oscar nominations on the brain!



















I recolored the pup with gray instead of black lines. This is easily done in a graphics program like Photoshop. All you do is choose the new color you want to work with and the paint bucket and by aiming carefully, you can drop the paint on the outline, giving it a new color.

I then typed some black text over the image, printed it and cut it out with a circle nestabilities die. I layered my paper on - 2 strips of black cardstock and the heart printed digi paper that I also recolored in Photoshop. This is one of the new digi papers from My Time Made Easy. A little red ribbon and a couple of colored hearts finish the card off, following the sketch perfectly!

Want to play along? This adorable A Dog's Day digi set can be yours! Just follow the sketch and upload your creation to your blog or other online gallery (use keyword MG34). Then link up over at the MyGrafico Challenges blog for a chance to win! And be sure to see what else the talented Team B members created as well as checking out Monday's posts from Team A.

I am off to rest up and try to get over a lousy cold I came down with. Have a great day!
