It has been forever since I played along with the Runway Inspired Challenge. None of the fashions spoke to me but then came this one and holy moly, it was made for me!
As you may recall, we lost our two red chow boys Teddy and Smokey last spring, just six weeks apart. We adopted a sweet and huggable black chow chow in August who we named Huckle Bear but red chows will always have a special place in my heart. So when I read that much of this designer’s collection was inspired by her little chow chow Lilybear, who is apparently well known on the streets of Paris, I knew it was time to get busy on a card. So, without further ado, here it is:
I masked the edges with thin washi tape and then used a dauber to apply Versafine in Smokey Gray. Then I die cut the chow chow from Stardream Flame and added a few enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye. The sentiment is an old one from A Muse embossed in Turquoise onto PTI Berry Sorbet cardstock and popped up with foam tape.
I am beary happy with the result. And just so Huckle isn’t left out given all the focus on red chows, here is a pic of my sweet boy along with my other sweet boy 🙂
Aww, just love that silhouette!! Very cute 🙂 Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
Beautiful card to go with a beautiful story…thanks for sharing with us at the Runway Inspired Challenge 😉
