OCL is on a roll!  Can you believe all the stamp sets that they are giving away lately?  OMGosh, it's awesome!  The Thankful For YOU promotion will resume on Monday.  If you haven't heard about it yet, they are giving away a set a day (Monday through Friday) until the end of December.  Wednesday was a sneak peek of the new Valentine's release then Thursday was my first ever blog hop where each person on the stop is giving away a different set (it isn't too late to go back and leave comments along the hop if you want to be entered for a chance to win a set).  And today, TGIF, is the new sketch challenge (click on the link for complete details).  At the end of the month, someone will win an OCL stamp set of their choice. cool is that!?!

Today I'm keeping with the Valentine's Day theme and used a set called Pat the Dog.  Isn't that little guy just the cutest?  There are four coordinating Pat sets:  Pat the Dog, Pat the Good Dog, Pat the Bad Dog and Pat the DAWG House.  I want them all (please)!  Santa, I promise I've been good...well, maybe not good...just not bad enough to join Pat in the Dawg House!  Ha! 

Pat was stamped with Black Soot on Neenah CS then colored with Copic markers.  All of the CS was distressed with Early Esspresso before it was layered.  The sentiment was stamped on Creamy Caramel then a ruler and a fine-tip marker was used to draw the line.  The paw prints are an EK Success border punch (love it!).  After the heart was colored, I glued some Rose Pink Crafty Sparkles on it.  Embroidery thread was used to tie knots on the buttons before using Glue Dots to adhere them.  Easy Peasy!
Hey Gale...did you notice the brown and pink!?! 

Copic coloring:

Dog:  E43, E41, E40, E37, E35, E34, E29, E27, E25, R20  Heart:  RV14, RV13, RV11  Ground:  YG95, YG91, YG17, YG11  Sky:  BG10, 0
