I made this card for Kerry's first Thursday challenge, 3CTC1, over on her blog. I really liked the sketch and couldn't wait to participate.
I just loved this dog from Whipper Snapper from the moment I saw it!! When I first started dating my husband his family had a big, black dog that did nothing but slobber all over everything and his tongue was always trying to lick everything. My father-in-law loved ice cream and so did Brutus. When my FIL was done with his ice cream he would leave a little in the bowl for the dog and when he was done with the box of ice cream that big dog would act like a puppy chasing the box around the kitchen trying to lick every last drop. That is why I put the ice cream cone on my card and I thought the saying was very fitting for the memory this card gave to both my husband and I.
The ice cream was brushed with Shimmerz to give it a summery, melty look. The dog's drool and his tongue have Crystal Effects on them to give them a wet look. I could not find a bone stamp or image to print out so I had to draw one myself. I wasn't real happy with it but I was afraid if I played with it too much I would only make it worse. This is why I stamp and don't draw!
