Guesting for the Sisterhood

I'm guesting for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers--woo hoo!  Challenge #92 is J for Jumble. Think collage, mixing up a bunch of images, supplies, etc.  Very fun!

Now if this card doesn't make you chuckle AND cringe, then nothing will! LOL. I started out stamping the mutt then put down a Distress Crayon yellow focal point and a blue ground. I added a brick stencil using Distress Ink. What an easy way to create shadow and depth. Next I colored the mutt using Copics which performed beautifully on the Strathmore mixed media paper.

The string gel guts, colored with a bit of acrylic paint, turned out perfectly in the pouring (used a q-tip with the tip broken off) but I wanted to keep working on the card rather than waiting for it to dry. Leaf on the guts? Covers fingerprint. Swirls? More fingerprint covering.  All turned out fine tho.

I used a branch die to create ivy and layered another die on top of that for the ivy leaves. That's about as collagey as I get! I did layer the sentiment although my CAS self wanted to stamp it directly on the background. The things I'm willing to do when I'm guesting!
