Beach Dachshund

I keep making beach cards because I find them so relaxing to create.  This time around, the Rubbernecker image of "Dog" (SKU:569-18) begged me to put him in the beach scene.  Who am I to object to such a request?

And, it just so happens that this request fits July's Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood challenge perfectly.  Here is the inspiration photo:
I stamped the adorable little dachshund with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored him with Copic markers.  I cut around the image with my Cutter-bee detail scissors.

I then cut a piece of X-Press It cardstock with a Nestabilities die and used Copic markers, a white Uni-ball Signo gel pen, and FlowerSoft to create the beach setting for the card.  I drew the birds in the distance with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker.  I paper pierced around the image panel.

Using my Cricut and the cartridge Life is a Beach, I cut the crab using creme cardstock..  I sponged around the crab with Adirondack Latte dye ink, and used the Uni-ball Signo gel pen and Memento Tuxedo Black marker to add the crab's eyes.

I paper pierced around a panel of Bo Bunny patterned paper. I faux stitched with a colored pencil.  I placed the beach scene, complete with the dachshund and crab onto this panel.  I framed this panel with creme cardstock.  I added Caribbean Baker's Twine around the card, tied a bow and added a brown button for the finishing touches on this card.

I've got to share with you the reason I put the crab into the scene.  Earlier last week, I discovered this adorable video that has gone viral....watch this!



Makes me wonder what Sloopy would do on the beach, LOL!

Sure hope you can join us this month on for the Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge! Head on over to the blog and check out all of the details. Though you aren't going to win a trip to the beach, you could win a stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps!
