What's the dirt?

I just got these Our Craft Lounge images in the mail, and set right to work. They are adorable and so much fun to work with. I used images from 4 different sets. And Michelle is carrying quite the variety of OCL sets! Check them out HERE!!

I first stamped this *Pat the bad dog* image onto Neenah Solar White, masked him and made the wall with the stone image from the*Whispy Patterns* set and Slate (Adirondack Dye Ink). The little dog bones are from the *Pat the good dog* set, and the chewed up shoe and tipped dog dish are from the *Pat the Dawg House* set. See how wonderfully they all work together? Such fun.

They're all colored with copics, and the sign and main image were diecut and embossed with the Long Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and my Cuttlebug.

All the edges were ink distressed with Walnut Stain, (Ranger Distress Ink) and the dp is Old World (Kaisercraft)

The dots? My favorite!! They're called Candy Dots (Pebbles, Inc.), and they're holes need to be punched!! And they have a nice matte finish.

The curvy border on my brown panel was cut out with the largest Curved Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders), but unfortunately most of it got covered with my vertical panel...*grin*.

All the panels are matted with Black Prismatics, and the card base is Suede Brown Light (Prismatics)...Prismatic papers are my paper of choice. I LOVE the texture, and it distresses beautifully with light or dark inks!!

Stamps - Pat the Good Dog, Pat the bad dog, Pat the dawg house, Whispy Patterns
Paper - Suede Brown Light, Black (Prismatics), Old World (Kaisercraft), Neenah Solar White
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink), Slate (Adirondack Dye Ink)

Happy Stamping!
