shirleys2girls 222 Challenge

Happy Sunday and Spring is on it's way. I completed my next challenge for shirleys2girls. The challenge was to embrace the word "SPRING" using their sweet and oh so chic purse box. To see the challenge and the cute purse box click here. Well I decided with my love and passion for dogs that I would use their newly released images of domino! I love this sweet little dog! We're playing in the park on the first day of SPRING! Here's how I created my challenge.

I took a sheet of Stampin' Up! whisper white 8.5 x 11 and that was my palette. I started by taking my ink pads to create a blue sky using SU soft sky, SU baja breeze and SU pacific point. Once I got it just as I wanted I created the grass using SU old olive and SU garden green. Tried a couple of sheets to get this just how I wanted it. I've never created sky and grass using ink pads before. Works really nice. This is where I got the idea from. I used a sponge and whisper white craft ink to make my clouds. I then cut out my template of my cute little purse matching up where I wanted the grass and the sky to start. I used my word window punch to create the fence and my copics to add some roughness to it. Next I stamped my cute little dog out on neenah classic solar white and memento ink. I colored them both with my copics and then I cut both images out. The womens pants and shirt are paper pieced. I double stacked my dimensionals to give some depth in front of the fence for my images. I punched stems (new ek success punch) and flowers (SU punch) out to put behind the image but in front of the fence. I used my crop-a-dile to put the yellow centers on the flowers. I added some butterflies (martha stewart butterfly punch). Last I added a button for closure and some bright colored ribbon. I hope you like. I had a ton of fun making it!
