Ruff Day?

Carole is our TCP Tuesday71 hipster hostess with the mostest, and she's got a very rounded sketch for us--we're talking, sharpen up those corner rounders, girls! Or as one of my favorite sayings goes: if ya got 'em, use 'em (or sumpin' like that, wink). Be sure to pop on over to Carole's place for her original sketch as well as all the swanky TCP Tuesday deets--you know, how you play along, and how you can become the swanky stamper of the month, or how you can win some TCP cash!

I decided that I wanted to ink up one of the latest TCP releases, You Sick Thing, which got me thinking "band-aid" for the long, rounded, rectangular layer, and that's just what I did. But then I ran into a little trouble with the thought of covering my band-aid layer with the main image layer, which led me to acetate--ah, what a lovely thing is acetate in a situation like this. I think the acetate adds to the fun and funkiness of the card as well.

The "Ruff Day?" sentiment was originally stamped on the acetate as well, but I wasn't happy with its placement, so I covered it up with the kraft sentiment circle and a few staples, cause this little pooch might have had such a "Ruff Day" that he required a few staples as well! Last, is the repeated Poochie stamped into a background on the base layer in VersaMark ink, and that's it! Oh, don't forget to round all those corners, too. Ü

Thanks for stopping over today!
