It's A Dog Eat Dog World

It's a doggie from the dark side. This image is from KennyK and is perfect for representing the saying, "It's A Dog Eat Dog World." This dog is eating a dog of his own. How's that for, "punny?" He must be the pet of one of KennyK's new Gothik Angelz. I loved this dog image and as soon as I seen it, I had to make a card with it. Their challenge this week is "From The Dark Side," which isn't usually my style, so this is new for me. I'm not sure how "dark" I was able to make him, but I gave it a shot. I tried to use darker colors, but had to add a little splash of color for the hotdog.

This image reminds me of the movie, All Dogs Go To heaven, because this dog is certainly in heaven, eating that hotdog! I have a dog just like this, but she's black and she loves it when she gets "people food!" It also remdinds me of the Carrie Underwood song, "The More Boys I Meet" (The More I like my dog! I love this song and now I have it playing over in my head. *sigh*

For this card, I used the sketches from Pear Tree Designs and from Sweet Stampin. All papers are from my stash. I love the black and white gingham checked paper. The center piece of DP with the stitched stripe is from my scrap box. I colored the image with Promarkers, using the grey family. (This is my absolute favorite prodcut, ever!) Then, I distressed the image block by adding some dark grey ink to the edges, and matted the block on black cardstock. The 3 sets of 3 dots on the image block were made with a fine tip black Promarker. The black flowers are new. I found these in the clearance section at Meijers. They had pink stones in the centers, and I altered them by removing the stones and adding skittles dyed with cranberry alcohol ink. The black skittles in the opposite corners are from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated. The skittles and flowers add a nice 3D effect.
