I promised there was a new sheriff in town and here he is! My friend Alma, the Cat's Pajamas Lady, is releasing some new stuff tomorrow and for one glorious moment I pretended to be on her design team! (She does not know this and has not given her permission in any way so please don't tell her, I am happier in my fantasy...) Every release I marvel at the incredible work my DT Members do and thought how fun it would be just to pretend to be one of them! The grass is always greener you know... Alma sent me the sets to play with and of course I fell in love since I find their style to be infectious, just pure fun, ykwim? Unfortunately, my pic of this card does not do it justice, it is quite fabulous IRL if I do say so myself! The problem is, I don't have a studio box (another strong hint). I do have a big tent contraption that is too big for my space to set up permanently and too cumbersome (it really doesn't take much to overwhelm me) to set up each time I want a photo. So...you'll have to take my word for it! I created this card for the weekly MFT Sketch Challenge and as soon as I saw the sketch with the little star I KNEW this set would be perfect! To create Sheriff Poochies new digs, I stamped him, masked him and stamped behind him with the town stamp. Given that I am a dork and didn't reach the extra 6 inches to grab my Eclipse tape, I made his mask by using cardstock and there was quite a bit of the town that I had to draw back in to make this look right. Nice work as usual. I took great care coloring his scene, I don't think I've ever spent more time coloring anything! But since it's my *DT audition* I suppose it was well spent! So in case Alma does happen upon this...I hear you might have a spare studio box?????
