DAWN’S PUNCH ART DOG

GREETINGS and SALUTATIONS…

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I WAS IN LOVE WITH THESE GUYS… My Mom and my BFF BOTH LOVE DOGS and so of course this is going to be part of their birthday cards… however I am going to have them in the pop up box… along with a heart that says happy birthday at least that’s the plan and when I get the first one done I will post it at the bottom of this blog…

MY DIE CUT DOGS

I say they are die cuts because I didn’t have the oval punches and frankly didn’t want to buy them…. I did however have oval dies from nestibilities… at least I think that’s where they came from. SO below are two samples from the two sizes I used both will fit on an A2 size card but the larger one pretty much fills it…

So how do you make them work… well it took several tries but I discovered that one needs the following ovals;

2  for the body /head…and you overlap them a little

1 for the legs and you follow Dawn and cut it in half diagonally

1 in white for the face

All of the above are the same size oval… so if you are making the big dog use big ovals and if you are making the smaller one use small ovals…

EARS…. on the small dog I used a raindrop punch that I had and on the large dog I used a small triangle punch that I had … I think either one works…and maybe you will come up with another one that would work as well…

NOSE… YES I admit it  I do have two different size heart punches… lol…

EYES… I used two size hole punches and then the white pen in the eye…

Finally I used a small sun punch for the dog tag on the small dog and a flower punch for the dog tag on the large dog…

I do have the PHRASE PUNCH from STAMPIN UP so I did use that for his feet but you could just cut two 1/4″ strips and round them and add the feet..

I did love the owls but have many friends that love dogs so thought these were too cut to pass up… Hope you enjoy them also and sorry for posting delay but life happened.

 

EYE CANDY  this is my eye candy this week…. look at the photo closely it is not really a BIRD but a female model who has been body painted to look like a bird… Just amazing I think so had to share…THANKS CAROLE CROSE FOR SHARING WITH ME

parrot/woman

 

IT’S NOT A BIRD. When this landed in my inbox. I could not resist sharing it. This parrot is in fact a female model who posed for Johannes Stötter, a fine art body painter. Using breathable paint, he spent hours painstakingly turning this woman into the image of a parrot, brushstroke by brushstroke. The model’s arm forms the parrot’s head and beak, and her legs form the wing and tail feathers. Remember: things aren’t always what they appear to be.
