In The Doghouse

Now, I didn't intend on being back again quite so quickly but I had a lightbulb moment and had to act fast while it lasted!

I was furtling through my boxes of stamps looking for something to use for this week's LESS IS MORE challenge, which is a One Layer Card with the theme of Houses.

I found a Penny Black stamp that appealed but felt that it was too small for a one layer, and then I came across an old Whipper Snapper stamp and "ping" the lightbulb went on .....


Inspired by the small Penny Black image, I did a rough pencil sketch of the doghouse on a 6x4 card base.  I stamped the Whipper Snapper dog over the top and then, using a waterproof ink pen, I inked in the lines of the doghouse that I wanted.  A slip-slap of Distress Inks (ReInkers) and a Hero Arts sentiment and done!

Even if I do say so myself, I was quite surprised by the end result but very pleased!  I hope doghouses are allowed in the challenge, or I shall be in one ......

Hugs, Sxx
