"Try It Different" Tuesday: Birthday Dog

This week I'll be turning 29 (okay, yeah...for the fifteenth time) and thought it would be fun to show you a few cards using 10977MC Delightful Dogs #1 Clear Set:

These cute pups were drawn by artist Janie Miller, and we're featuring the Birthday Dog image (0783J in wood mounted), along with the 0821D Mini Birthday saying.

Michelle Pearson created two fun projects using these same stamps last fall, but I just couldn't resist showing you a few more. For instance, take a look at this adorable card by Jovi Kloess:

Jovi is the "master of matting." I love how she framed the main image, and the Liquid Applique (cupcake frosting), Glossy Accents (nose and paw pads) & glitter (card edge) add the perfect touches!

Speaking of finishing details, I've never used a Copic Airbrush System myself but Dawn Lusk sure makes it look awesome:

In this gorgeous card, Sherri Dean left more of the white space showing on her dog:

Even though colored pencils and Gamsol were used on all three cards, you can see how each of them uses progressively less color for the main image. They're all great, and it really just depends on what kind of look you prefer.
