A Boys Best Friend


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Make It Masculine

This week we are showcasing Tim Holtz Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As luck would have it the Monday Challenge also has the same theme so you could join in with both! 
 As always, Simon has a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store ready for one lucky winner!

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.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

This TH Crazy Dog is so cute and such a fun image Debby and I love the diagonal striped paper and clouds with the lovely teal colour for the stitched stars and background mats, and nice bold sentiment too. x
