Woodware Design Team Challenge - Sketch

This week we are back to doing another sketch. This card is definitely for dog lovers. We have never been a 'pet' family but many of my friends have a cat or dog so I've seen first hand how much people love their furry friends. We had a goldfish for a little while... but that is it. I had great fun designing this set and still enjoy playing with it.

All the stamped elements used on this card are from the set. There are lots of doggy related words and items associated with a dog. The large bone is blank so as I have done on the card you can put in a wording or leave it blank.
The papers come from the 'London Collection' that Woodware distribute. I do like my spots and ginghams as they don't clash with the stamping.

I've gone for a bit of sponging around the edges of the papers and card. For that I used a  terra cotta 'Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink' from one of the Cats Eye Queues. So useful for this sort of thing.

The little paw is the waste from this 2cm Woodware punch;  CAT PAW  815-43
A little tricky to arrange and stick but well worth the effort. Other detail include nailheads, ribbon, dashed line drawn using a Sakura Black Micron pen and white highlights using a white Sakura pen.

I should really have made his nose shinny for this post so I will need to do that at some stage!

Pop along to the Woodware Blog to see other great ideas for the sketch.
