OSAAT #169 - Not Square
Well, I'm home from my break in Kent and raring to go with my DT cards again. This one, though, was a pain to photograph. I'm not a photographer and had a heck of a job trying to get a reasonable shot of this one, with no Eric to help me.
This week the theme at One Stitch at a Time is Not Square so I made an easel card. The image is Boxer by Sue of Beary Dust over at the Stitchybear Digital Outlet. He's got such a cute little face and looks so sad but I bet he causes havoc when let loose! I made the card for my son Peter and he's already received it so it's quite safe to post it on here now! He did say that he thought I'd gone senile and written on the front of the card - until he realised which way it folded.
I coloured him with my Promarkers, cut him with a Spellbinders nestie and edged that with Distress Ink before matting on to black pearlescent card from Papermill. The backing paper on the base and the side panel is from Costco and that was matted on to black Mirri card. I generated the sentiment on the computer and matted that on to black Mirri card too to make the stopper for the easel. I used three buttons, kennel, woof and dog as embellishments and they were all from Create and Craft.
