OCC Sketch Challenge -- Birthday Cake!

It's Saturday! Time for the OCC Challenge! For this week’s challenge we have a sketch to jump start our creativity. Check out the OCC Blog to see what goodies are up for grabs this week and all the details of how you can enter to win. So please join us and Go Get Inky! For a close up view on the OCC's projects for this week please visit the OCC Ladies on their blog -Silke Ledlow, Cindy Haffner, Jennifer Meyer, Frances Byrne, Loretta Lock , Viki Garrett and Joycelyn Turner.

Heehee! How cute is this little pup from Dog Gone Stamps with his tummy all poochin' out from eating too much cake! I thought I followed the sketch for today pretty well, until I went back and looked at it, after my card was completed, of course!! Seems the two panels in the back are a wee bit slim compared to what they should be. Ooops. This is a fun image to color and I paired it up with funky paper from DCWV's Pet Stack, which is all shimmery and glittery in real life-- so it is a little more eye catching than the picture shows. Completed card is an A2.

  • Stamps: Chihuahua by Dog Gone Stamps, "It's Your Birthday" Sentiment from TCP
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black
  • Paper: DCWV Pet Stack, Yellow, Brown, Curious Cryogen White, Blue
  • Other: Silk Ribbon, Bow Easy Tool, Cuttlebug Folder, White Gel Pen, Orange Fine Tip Pen, Mini Crystals, Orange Rainbow Tape

  3. Hoo's yo chihuahua, baby?!!! I knew he was a chihuahua before I saw the recipe! Makes me think of the little attitudinal chihuahua in Oliver and Friends - did you ever see that Disney movie from the 80's? Billy Joel was the voice of the main character, Bette Midler was the stuck up standard poodle and Cheech Mareno was her love interest chihuahua.

    Fab card!
