Dog Days of Summer

That's right!  It is HOT outside and like my little doggies, all I want to do is stay inside in the AC!  Dreamweaver Stencils is celebrating Summertime and all things related.  I consider the Dog Days of Summer to be appropriate, especially now that we have a super cute steel die that matches our LL 3029 Dog Stencil!  Oh my gosh, can I just tell you how much I love the matching dies!!!  They've just released them at CHA Create and Connect and I know they're going to be a huge hit.  So here's my card:

Angled View
Here's a different angle to showcase the dimension.  I used matte black embossing paste with the stencil and paste embossed the dog first.  Once it was dry, I added the die cut pieces over the black paste.  I left the nose, eye and collar black.  I did fill in the eye with Copic marker.  Below is a close-up of the dog that really shows the depth of the paste under the paper pieces.  My papers are Bazzill, Neenah Class Crest CS and Basic Grey's Whiskers and Max 6x6 paper pad.  I also used a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Here's the list of everyone posting today:
