Puppy Love Layout


Good evening fellow scrappers! I'm a bit late in posting this page. This was done for Color Combos Galore (CCG) Challenge #221.

This would be me & my fur-baby Toby. Toby was barely 4 months old here! Sometimes I can't believe that he was this tiny. Now he weighs a whopping 16 lbs! No matter how much he grows though...he'll always be my 'little boy'.

Here's the CCG challenge my page is based on. I used all the colors from the palette & incorporated a few wooden embellies & a couple of owls as inspired by the wooden owls in the challenge.

The background of the layout was hand cut. I just traced a large scallop mask I have over plain ivory card stock and hand cut it out. I then inked the edges with a bit of Peeled Paint distress ink.

The half heart circle is made out of wood. The flocked pup is from my stash.

You can see a bit of the hand stitching in this screen shot. I once again combined the zig-zag stitch with the straight stitch to add a bit of texture.

The brown flourishes going straight down my page is actually a stamp by Hampton Art.

The corner grunge stamp is by Stamp Enjoy. I first stamped the image onto a transparency with black Staz On and then cut it out. This way I was able to place the image exactly where I wanted it.

The triple owls is a stamp by Sideshow Stamps. Like my corner stamp--the owls were stamped onto a transparency with black Staz On and then cut out. TIP: stamping images on transparencies allows you to place your images wherever you wish. Just remember to use a permanent ink like Staz On or else your image will smear.

The large owl sitting in my vine is a glimmer glass by Tattered Angels.

The vine is a Color Me vine by Petaloo...it was spritzed with a bit of blue glimmer mist & then randomly inked with some Weathered Wood distress ink. Finally, I further decorated the flowers on the vine by lightly adding a bit of clear Star Dust Stickles along the edges of the flower petals.

The little fence is also made out of wood. I added a bit of tulle to the large flower (by Prima) in order to soften the layout a bit.

The script seen here is a stamp by Donna Salazar called 'All My Love' & the mulberry flowers are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by & do pay CCG a visit to see the other DT's interpretation of this challenge and to play along for a chance to win some goodies!
