Father's day card

The card I shall be entering into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Masculine and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: anything goes showcasing Doodlebug products.

For my card I Stamped the Gentleman dog from Katzelkraft onto the Crafter's Companion Marker paper and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. Then I ripped the bottom as if the doggie ate it ;-).
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches (Fun and Flirty) and I stamped it with Versamark ink, then heat embossed it with Wow! clear matt dull embossing powder.

I inkblended Versamagic Midnight black and Distress Oxides on the carbase to reinforce the "eaten" part. I added a few enamel dots,

or sprinkles as Doodlebug calls them, I'm not 100% sure these are Doodlebug though I think so.

Mounted the stamped panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase. On the nose of the dog I added a bit of gelpen for a shiny nose effect.

I thought this would be cool for Father's day, also my uncle used to own Great Danes, so another one will go to him later too haha...I colored the guy in flashy colors as he looks very dandy to me ;-)
