Little did I know, that this dog right now represents my life. I find myself babysitting a not-potty trained 5 month old dachshund for a friend, along with Sloopy. So this mischievious little Penny Black dog represents what I'm experiencing in my real life...times 2! I don't think next Monday at 6:00 can get here quick enough.
Anyway, I'm pleased with this card, though I did bend the rules and not use any embellishments. I just didn't feel it needed any. I find that holds true with many larger images. The stamp is from Penny Black and it is called "Naughty or Nice?" and on the actual wood-mounted stamp, the colors are with red and green. I wanted to make this a winter type card, not a holiday card. I think I pulled it off by just using shades of blue.
Stamped on Sterling Matte Coat from Arvey's, using Marvy Dye ink. Colored with Copics. The sentiment is from an acrylic set from Hero Arts. White Pen-Touch pen used for the dots along the blue.

This card, entitled, Snow Shower, is exactly what we need overnight Monday into Tuesday.
This is a card I made for a Whipper Snapper swap over on SCS. You know the drill by now...Geogia Pacific Cardstock with Copic Markers.

This card was my take on last week's Inspiration Challenge #109 on SCS. Sadly, it took me a whole week before I could find the time or energy to stamp. Guess that's the reality of being back to work.
Anyway, the details you can probably guess...the image is from Northwoods and is stamped in Marvy Dye black on Sterling Matte from Arvey's. Colored with Copic markers. The background is my first attempt at Faux Wood. I took a green sheet of textured paper from Hollo's and smeared/swiped ColorBox Frost White and ColorBox Antique Pewter to make it appear woodlike. I drew the two lines and added some hardware.
I do like it, I think.

Anyway, the details...stamped with black Stazon on Bristol vellum and colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I guess, since I've mentioned Stampotique and Creative Pals in my last two posts...I must be itching to do some traveling.
And no...I'm not going to Monday's game. As painful as that is to admit.

Anyway, this is my creation, based upon a Sketch Challenge #157 on SCS. This time, my Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils decided to work together and not beg for my individual attention. Stamped with Marvy Dye black ink on Georgia Pacific cardstock.

This was my attempt at what is called Split Negative/Split Image technique. It was for a Technique Lovers Challenge, #149 on SCS. I struggled with this one. Harder than it looks, and given the end product, I think I'll just chalk it up as a project to learn from.
Hopefully, 2008 will bring me some better cards than this.
