Stencil, Window, Dogs

I had a cover die I recently bought with some windows and shutters on so thought this would be a good way to cover the ‘window’ part. I have a few dog-related stamp sets but went for the My Favourite Things one which I don’t have dies for. Because of this, once I’d cut out my cover panel, I took another piece of card and measured the windows where I’d have to stamp the dogs so it looked like they were looking out of the windows.

I then coloured the dogs in and gave each one a different coloured background:-

Before I stuck this to the back of my cover panel I wanted to stencil the cover panel. So I masked off the windows and used a brick stencil and some Distress Ink to create a townhouse effect.

I didn’t like the look of the doors so used the cover die again to get some new ‘shutters’ which I coloured with Distress Oxide ink. I then glued them onto the cover panel.

I stuck my dog panel onto the back of the cover making sure the dogs lined up in the windows properly. I used double-sided tape to stick it down.

Finally I added a sentiment strip and a few Nuvo Jewel Drops.

I think this is quite cute!

Thanks for looking 🙂
