Dirty Dog!!

One layer cards? So not my forte. Now I've made them in the past (3 times), but only if they're a challenge...not because I just decided to make a one layer card for the fun of it. PAHLEASE!! Talk about stepping out of my comfort zone!!

Well, since today is Dare To Get Dirty on SCS, I decided to try to combine all three of today's challenges. Michelle's - Masculine, JulieHRR's - Basic White, and Christine's - Watercolor.

You can only see the other cards if your a fan club member, so go down to my previous post and learn about how to sign up.

Now, my DH is always in the doghouse, but this card could be for any guy that is a *stinker*. Believe me, I'm surrounded by BIL's, friends, even my son, that can be terribly ornery. And this card would be perfect for them. I think it could even be for those gf's that have an ornery side to them....I have a few of those too. LOL

For this card I used my scorepal to make the top look like bricks, watercolored my doghouse, and ink distressed the edges with slate (Adirondack). There's a slight colorwash behind the doghouse that is more visible irl. I also used a decorative scissors to cut the bottom of my card...you know dogs and their chewing habits...*grin*

Supplies:
Stamps - Dog Lover (Inque Boutique)
Paper - White
Ink - Black Onyx (Versamark), Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Crisp (Stampin' Up), Slate (Adirondack)
Accessories - Black embossing powder, waterpen, SU reinkers, Key Tag Punch (SU), Cranberry Crisp stitched ribbon (SU), eyelet (making memories), crop-a-dile

I'm lovin' the scor-pal'd bricks!!

I love white space cards, but I also like layers so this was something different for me today too. Feels kinda funny holding a one layer card, huh?...where's all the weight?? ;-)
