I usually panic when I see that we are showcasing Tim Holtz products, I alway feel I should try to be arty like Tim Holtz, this time I didn't have time to panic or do it the arty way. I decided to use Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs which I really don't use enough.
First of I had to chose which dog to use and coloured him in, I use pencils but the crazy dogs work with all types of colouring.
To make my card Debby's way I chose some patterned paper you guess it, its Doodlebug this time I've use Dragons Tail.
I needed a nice big Happy Birthday and I used the Happy Birthday Painted die from Simon Says Stamp and in Black card to make it really pop. Now the tricky bit decorating a masculine card so I took the cheats way out and die cut some Stitched Stars using the Bundle of Stitched Shapes from Simon Says Stamps.
I don't have the dies so I had to fussy cut but I have a secret weapon when I fussy cut, not scissors but a Distress Maker Pumice Stone. I run the marker round the outside of my fussy cut image and hides multiples of rubbish cutting and looks like you an amazing fussy cutter.
Also did you know our Sister Challenge Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is having a masculine challenge too, why don't you pop along there too.
