Seeing Double

This week at Craft Your Passion we’d love to see double of anything on your card.Could be images,flower,gems,brads,buttons…well anything as long as there are two!!For full details on how to play along  and for the chance to win some digi images pay the challenge blog a visit.You’ll get to see my fellow DT’s fabulous creations too!

I decided to go for two images so I could do double the colouring!I then came upon the idea of making a step ladder card so they could stand either end.A bit like china dogs on a mantlepiece – does anyone remember them?!I resized and horizontally flipped  the image in Paint before printing a second time.I used the template from here but instead of drawing the lines in pencil I used my Fiskars Euro trimmer to cut and score them instead. I ‘constructed’ the doghouse myself.I run a piece of cardstock through my Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripe folder then cut the pieces, including the little diamond detail, and adhered them together using PVA glue.I cut a piece of black card rounding the top to make the doorway.Not sure if they’ll mind sharing tho’ ?To complete the scene I simply used some blue and green papers to create sky and grass.It doesn’t show in the pic but I did use Glossy Accents on their noses to give a healthy wet look.I put a thick layer on to add dimension too.I dabbed the nozzle on the tongues to give a shiny,wet look but so that it dried flat. 

Supplies :
Image : Fluffy Dog from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps
Mediums : Promarkers,Glossy Accents
Sentiment: From Kanban Wobblers Farmyard Friends stamp set
Paper & Card : Beige card from Papermania A4 Capsule Textured Colossal pack,Black card from stash,DP Papercraft 4 You
