Hello!! I created this card in part for this weeks Simon Says Monday Challenge which is Hip Hop.
I decided to approach this theme from the music side rather than using something that hopped. Although now, as I'm typing up this post, it has occurred to me that I could have put bunny ears on the dog. But no, I'll leave it as is.
For the background I started with Mixed Media paper and applied layers of Distress Ink, both Oxide and Regular using lot of water and drips while drying and layering more. Once done with the ink, I used the Sizzix, Tim Holtz music folder to emboss the paper and then applied Treasure Gold - White Fire with my finger keeping it mostly to the high spots. Real stitching around the edges.
Here is a close up. Isn't that scrumptious!!!
The quote is a Quietfire Design rubber stamp (Music Expresses). The paper I've stamped it on is Mixed Media Heavy Weight sprayed with Distress Spray Stain, some stencil (Tim Holtz) work with both water and ink and then splatters of water. On the edges I've dabbed PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint - White Fire. Under the quote panel is black burlap. The Tim Holtz dog was stamped onto Mixed Media paper, water colored using Distress Inks and a water brush. The music notes are punched from black paper (a really old punch).
