Poodle Power...!! Dog Eared That's Crafty Challenge Blog.

Morning everyone, a new challenge blog starts over at That's Crafty today and for the next two weeks the theme is Dog Eared. Using Rubber Dance Poodle Power Stamp set 
Designed by Donna Gray I've created a  Dog themed panel.

Here in words and pictures is my Dog Eared How to do's...

The poodle image has been stamped twice so I could layer up the curly fur, I coloured and cut out the areas I wanted to layer and applied Fluffy Stuff. This gives a raised effect just like popcorn when heated with a heat gun.

I covered the panel with texture sand paste and a coating of acrylic paint. I then decorated 
with a combination of  That's Crafty stamps and stencils.

The hat was created by pushing modelling paste through the dinky cogs stencil and highlighting with waxes when dry. Wire was added to the flower along with a watch cog to add interest.

Ranger paint dabbers help tie in the colours used on the panel and a stamped phrase which is part of the Poodle Power set.. Dots, dashes and a squiggle or two using my trusty Posca Pens help complete my Dog Eared panel piece.

Do pop along and see all the inspiration from the That's Crafty Design Team and I really do hope you will feel inspired to join in with this *Woofly*.. Dog Eared theme over at the
That's Crafty Challenge Blog. and the chance to win a £20 gift voucher to spend in the
That's Crafty Shop.... Now wouldn't that be just PAW_FECT..!!!

Have a fabulous weekend all..
Hugs Tracey xx
