Digi Choosday Challenge –New Pet!

Good morning everybody! 

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new ‘Anything Goes’ challenge over at POLKADOODLES DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s for a limited time only so be quick!

So the team have the theme of Happy New Pet this time and I tried to think of all the things you need when you first have a pet in the house. Bed, bowl, collar, lead, industrial strength cleaner!! But as I can’t make any of those things I settled on a picture clip, collar tag and a necklace. 

I have just discovered printable shrink plastic (I know, it’s probably been around for ages) so that is what I used to make all my doggy themed things.

The collar tag and necklace are simply designs from the pre-coloured HORACE & BOO TOPPER SET that I punched holes in, shrank and added jump rings to. I added beads at the bottom of the necklace for a little added something.

The photo clip is just a peg, attached to a lolly stick attached to a crudely constructed chipboard base. I cropped and printed the pre-coloured HORACE image twice onto my shrink plastic (each A5 in size), cut him out with a die then shrank him. I attached these pieces to either side of my peg and decorated the lolly stick with the WOOF YOU DOGS stamp set.  I added the bowl and bones from the ‘DORABLE DOG dies to the base to hide my messy gluing. The photo is of my gorgeous Staffie when she was a baby. Sadly I lost her last year so this is going to sit in pride of place on my desk.
