News Hound

Hello.  Welcome.  I was lucky to be the random winner of the December VLVS challenge and my grab bag prize arrived yesterday.  Looking through I spotted a cute dog and a sentiment I couldn't resist inking up.  I think they went very well together.....

So, it was going to be an ATC, but I couldn't fit the dog and the sentiment on it, so I dug out some Sizzix journaling card dies.  Then, cos I don't PL or journal I decided to stick a piece of thin magnet on the back and make a fridge magnet.  Approximate size 7,5 x 10cm.  Sorry, I got carried away and forgot to photo.  

The background is a piece of thick brown card, die cut and sponged with Ground Espresso distress ink through Echo Park Diagonal Stripes stencil.  I stamped the VLVS circle on neon paper and embossed with black powder.  I cut some ex-plastic packaging with the die and embossed with Sizzix Ledger embossing folder.  I added some brown alcohol inks around the edges on the backside.  The dog, sentiment and floor detail are all VLVS stamped on old book paper.  The floor was detail is from a circus lady's stripy trousers!  Then I stuck my magnet on the back and it's ready to swap for a cup of really good coffee........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
