Daisy Dog

Here's my make for the Roc Nicholas Design Team for September, I tried to make it autumnal without screaming winter is coming!! I'm still LOVING this dog stamp, it's so versatile.
I took a little wooden bird house and extended what was a small round hole to a longer entrance fit for a dog and painted a base colour, when dry I painted with PVA glue and whilst this was wet I painted with the top coat, as the glue dries you get a crackle effect in your paint.
I stamped the dog on white card and coloured using distress inks and gave him/her a wet shiny nose with glossy accents. Finally for some embellishments I stamped Daisyhead on shrink plastic and cut out the daisy, coloured with Prismacolour pencils and shrunk.
Here are the links to the stamps I used: 
All of Roc's stamp designs can be found here at the Stampotique Online Store.
Wishing you a wonderful day, Sam xxx

  7. Love your altered "bird" house, Sam (and a very clever altering, at that!). I do like the darker colors as we move into Fall, and adding your crackle technique is just perfect for aging the wood a bit! Sweet pop image here!
