I wanted to play along with this week’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers and finally got a chance to stamp last night! The challenge this week is to use twine. I spent a little while just trying to come up with something different than the usual bow or knot that I typically create with a piece of twine. First, I thought I’d stretch a piece between two trees and perch a bird on it. Then, I thought about creating a clothesline with some mini clothespins I have in my stash, but the clothespins ended up being bigger than the miniature clothes images I had! Finally, I settled on a dog with a leash after digging through my miscellaneous wooden stamps!
In true perfectionist style, I found myself debating whether to tie the twine around the pup’s neck or try to make the leash look attached to him some other way. I decided to tangle him in it instead because I think dogs are very adept at this?!

I added three gemstones to the collar and popped the pup up with foam dots. It would probably take me much less time to recreate this card than it did to put the idea together! Good grief!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
