I am taking part in the ATC trade at the Vera Lane Studios facebook group, Cat or dog person.
I think this ATC makes its pretty obvious that I am a dog person :
The Vera Lane Studios images I have used here are :
Dog from Rescue Puppies, Cloud from Helga's Hedgehog and Wings from Wings for Things.
Who remembers the Everly Brothers song, Bird Dog ? Although not my era, I grew up listening to this type of music and very much appreciate it still now :
The background of my ATC is actually a playing card, painted with blue and white acrylic paint. I matted it onto card stock that I had coloured with W3 copic.
The dog and wings are coloured with copics (mostly W1-5) and fussy cut. I actually cut the dogs back legs off the dog as it looked better with the wings. But of course had to re-add the tail :) And I thought he needed some additional embellishment, the glittery blue collar was perfect :)
The cloud was printed and covered with the Marvey snow marker. When it was dry I heat embossed it and it goes all puffy. I actually edited the cloud a little, removing the large cloud piece. I also added some cotton wool below the cloud to enhance the fluffy cloud-like feel.
I glued down the cloud, the dog on top and finally added some coloured dots and the words I typed on my typewriter.
Final touch was adding some diamond glaze on the eyes, as I always do, but I did that after I took the pic. It gives a really awesome glassy eyed look.
Thanks for stopping by x
