If You Give A Crafter A Cookie: Little Patch Puppy


Today is the start of a brand new challenge at 
If You Give A Crafter A Cookie.
I hope you'll join us.

You can enter your projects until the 6th April.

 Here is the inspiration photo:

This time we are sponsored by the wonderful All Dressed Up

I was lucky to get an image to work with and I chose Little Patch Puppy.  
Here is my card:

 I coloured the puppy image using Spectrum Noir markers. For his body I used a dotty technique. Once coloured, he was fussy cut leaving a thin white border and attached to the background on foam pads.

 I made the background to look like a patchwork quilt. This was done by cutting and gluing 1 inch strips of patterned paper side by side. The diagrams below show how this was done:

Step 1: Cut 1 inch strips from two different patterned papers  and glue side by side:
Step 2: Cut across the strips as shown below:

Step 3: Align the strips as follows and trim as required:

A ribbon was placed diagonally across the top corner and a double bow attached. To finish off, a Papermania sentiment was added along with two pink daisies.

That's all from me for today. Now it's over to you...
