Bang Bang.... On the Door, Baby

Bang, bang! Knock a little louder sugar!
LOL! I just can't get that song out of my head, so I thought I'd share with you, so we can all be singing Love Shack today. ;)

Just so y'all know I don't hate dogs (even AFTER the dog barking incident earlier this week), I thought I'd share a Poochie card. I used this week's Mojo sketch as a jumping off point and pulled out my It's a Western Thing set from The Cat's Pajamas.

I cut and embossed an oval and mat using my Classic Ovals Nestabilities and then stamped Shootin' Poochie in Versafine Vintage Sepia. Next I colored him with Prismacolor pencils & gamsol and then sponged the outer edges of the oval with Vintage Sepia ink. All of the patterned paper designs are from the Souvenir Collection by Cosmo Cricket. On the square panel, I applied eyelets to each of the corners and then tied and knotted some hemp through each one. The square layers are distressed with my Tonic Distressing tool. The half circles are punched with a 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punch, and lightly sponged with Vintage Sepia ink. I then took the aqua piece and randomly stamped the Bang! star all over it and then stamped the sentiment There's a new sheriff in town on a scrap of the same paper. I gave this strip an eyelet and then attached to the card with some hemp, and tied a few knots on it to get that "barbed wire" effect. To finish it off I cut out one little Bang! star and glued it on top of the ovals and then matted the whole thing on a 5.25" square card base of French Roast Muslin (Paper Accents).

Hope y'all have an awesome weekend!
