A Dog Eared Challenge at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog

Hello all, hope you're all well and this time surviving not the hot and sunny weather last week but the gales we seem to have at the moment! I really don't like windy weather and end up wearing sunglasses even if it's raining (yes, you did read that right!) as my newly visioned eyes are still sensitive to not only sunlight but also wind. They don't hurt as such, just feel uncomfortable.
There's a new challenge today over at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog and having gone the feline route last time what else could we do but let the dogs out!
I have a rather iffy dog eared creation to share which I admit I'm really not sure about and struggled like mad with but it will have to do!

Sir Tim's crazy dogs are the only dog stamps I actually own so I decided to ink up this rather cute quirky eyed pooch. I stamped him on a piece of torn edged mixed media paper (the dog eared bit :D) with Archival Jet Black ink and coloured him with DecoArt acrylic in medium grey value 3 and added a little pencil detail when the paint was dry.
I then got to work with a couple of That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils (Grid and Chevron) with Barn Door, Stormy Sky and Peeled Paint Distress inks, smudging the colours a little.
I stamped the dog lead (I think he has a walkies or maybe not walkies look on his face) and finished off with a Small Talk Occasions sticker then added the panel to a grey card blank.

Do enter if you can as you'll have the chance to win a voucher for the online shop and there are loads of new and amazing new goodies about to appear too so don't forget you have to be in it to win it!

I'm now off for a long weekend away with my other half for a much needed rest down in Devon so I hope the weather improves.
