It's Monday! Time for another challenge from the Outlines Blog. This week, the challenge is pay tribute to our four legged friends by using animal stamps from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company. Well, as soon as I told my dachshund Sloopy about the challenge, she insisted, of course, that I do something for dogs. Make sure you play along too this week, for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Outlines.

I decided to do a shape card for this challenge. With the Cricut cartridge, Paper Pups, I cut out the image of a bone and the shadow of a bone using patterned paper from Making Memories and off white/beige cardstock. I paper pierced the patterned paper.

I then stamped the "Split Layering Collage -Woof" (H-1064) with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the multiple images within the collage with Copic markers. To add some bling, using Picksey Pick-Ups, I added some Swarovski crystals, Clear Size 9, to the fire hydrant, the flower next to the doghouse, and around one of the dog collars.

I placed my collage onto the bone, added the sentiment "To err is human..." (B-1081), along with a sheer light brown ribbon, and dog paw embellishments.

Make sure to see what the rest of the design team created for this Four Legged Friends Challenge:
