Spots and Stripes at Here Come The Boys

A new challenge starts today over at Here Come The Boys, the theme is “Spots and Stripes”.  This card has both....stripy paper and embossed spots.

 Totally Papercrafts has Spots and Stripes too, so I’m entering there.
I’ve used an image from Whimsie Doodles “Paws I Care” collection…. proceeds go to an Animal Welfare Charity, so you get to use a really sweet image and get a nice warm fuzzy feeling at the same time. Delicious Doodles has Cute and Cuddly as its challenge theme so my little Cutie’s in there. There are quite a few images in this collection, and others from Whimsie Doodles that have this “stitched” look, this along with my “stitching” (yes, you can use faux stitching, I checked!!) means I’ll enter Creative Inspirations challenge too who's theme is, you guessed it, Stitching!
The sentiment is from the same collection…well the one on the front is, I didn’t want to hurt my male recipient’s feelings too much so I qualified the “Size Matters” comment with “but not in ALL things, you’ll be happy to hear!”  It’s only a little bit smutty if you think it is, lol.
Creatalicious Challenges had this  fabulous sketch for its challenge this time, you know I love a good sketch! 
I’ve used my Prismacolor Pencils to colour the image, again, I’m starting to view them as a viable alternative to my lovely Copics, maybe not an alternative – more an adjunct J  Some Royal Coat Gloss on his nose and eyes give my little dog a nice healthy look…there’s some on the heart too, Crafty Creations has Let it Shine as it’s challenge so I’m entering there.
The papers are from Kaisercrafts Rewind 6” pad, the stripes are – well The Stripes – for the challenge theme and to get the Spots I embossed the blue with Cuttlebugs Spots and Dots folder. I also used that lovely spotty orange ribbon, the slider is a button that came (with quite a few others) in a bulk pack from Spotlight. Crafts 4 Eternity has Use Embellishments beginning with R as its challenge theme, so my Ribbon gets me in there, maybe my Round buttons do too!
Go and check out the rest of the DT inspiration at Here Come The Boys...and why not have a go at the challenge too!
I'll be back soon with something a little different, Until then, Happy Crafting, Dee
