This handsome fellow came from "Crafty Secrets Big Dogs" stamp set. The deal of the century is what I'd call this set, so many images and sentiments it'll keep you busy for a long time. After printing Rover I coloured him with copics. I used the hat in the set and coloured him again with copics but decided his hat needed some shaping so I shaped it around a pencil. There is enough dimension so that I needed 3 quite thick dimensionals stacked up under the middle of the front edge. The sentiment is also from Big Dogs. For some finishing touches I mounted the hound on red cardstock, and then houndstooth check, added a couple of buttons and some bobble trim, and on the left edge of his hat is a MS punched "CHEERS". The whole image of the hound in a party hat makes me smile.
Thanks so much for dropping by,
