You're So Square

Mojo Monday is a great blog and I just recently started playing along with their weekly challenges. I used this week's sketch to make a boy themed card for Card Cupids. I'm not entirely thrilled with the way this one turned out - but I am submitting it anyway. I spent a really long time fussing over the coloring of the dog - shading, re-shading, adding colors on top of other colors, even blending with my water brush. Perhaps I fussed too much. Oh, well. I do love this dog stamp. I've used it many times before, but I just had to use it again for this project - it's the perfect image for a boy.Paper is from the Complete Boy stack by My Mind's Eye.

My daughter has been a great design helper. As I was working on the dog and fussing over which colors to use, she said, "You should use green for the collar." And go figure, I had just at that moment decided to use green! Hmmm, is it genetic, or just plain creepy?

Thanks for looking!

Very cute, I'm a sucker for all stamps dogs or horses. In fact I have this little bully and the other "dog's life" set! Your card is darling, but maybe some white gel pen in/around the eyes, especially the darker one with the spot, it might make them stand out a little more. Otherwise, and adorable card!
