Stars and stripes

**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page 😦  **

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is On the Move/Transport.We have the fabulous QKR Stampede and The Robin’s Nest as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here we have the fantastic Rocket Dog -Digi Stamp by  QKR Stampede  reaching for the stars.He’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers with dots of silver gel pen on the rivets on both the rocket and his collar.The stars have been coated with Frosted Lace Stickles for some subtle sparkle rather than all out girly glitz. Of course,apart from loving dogs (especially my girl ) they are my favourite make of boots so for me he was the ultimate choice 🙂 Also this will be for my DS2’s Birthday in September.Gotta stay ahead!!Plus he’s pretty enamoured with dogs too – don’t know where he’s got that from 😉 Glad I found these papers.They’re just great for masculine projects and I like the colour palette too.There’s a nifty woodgrain pattern and a couple of florals thrown in as well 🙂 Some die cut stars wound with silver cord and some eyelets to go with the rivet theme have been added to embellish.

    Your card is adorable! Stars definitely come out at twilight, so it fits the bill! I love the expression on that dog’s face, and the sentiment!
