However, today I have gone with dogs which fits perfectly with this weeks challenge at Wicked Wednesday, and our sponsor is Sami Stamps.
I love these dogs, relaxing in the sun after playing
(at least, that's the scenario in my head, anyway LOL).
I printed them three times so that I could layer them. Each was coloured the same way using Prismacolor pencils. The background is a snippet of cloud paper, the sun is a stamp and the foreground is washi tape.
Please pop over to Sami Stamps and have a look at all the gorgeous images.
As the team at Wicked Wednesday are taking a well deserved break, you have until 31st January to add your entry to this challenge.
that way I could resize the images for a perfect fit.
I also used stamps from other sources that fitted in with the theme.
After resizing the images I printed them onto cardstock and began the task of working out which image would go on which panel.
For those of you who know how a never-ending card works,
you will understand my 'first flip' caption.
The images on the tiny panels are not digi but from various stamps.

Gosh, I didn't realise how many different stamp companies contributed to the making of this card. If you wish to know where a specific image comes from, please leave a message and I'll try to get back to you.
This step had me a bit stumped. I liked my tags as they were from Week 4 and wasn't sure about covering them in a layer of paint.
However, after thinking about it, I decided I'd use some Art Alchemy acrylic paint called
"Opal Magic Violet-Green"
This paint has a definite purple/violet appearance while still allowing what is underneath to be seen.
It's a bit hard to seen the sheen, but it is certainly there.
..... and now on to the next week.
Spray or drip a contrasting colour of paint or ink
across/down the tag
I wasn't too sure about this step as I didn't want to cover over the girls, so after thinking about it, I decided to puff some Ken Oliver Color Burst powder paint in 'Orange' on the top of the tag, spritz it with water and let it run down the tag.
