June Swap

Love at First Sight
I made this shaker card for a swap over on Stampin D'Amore. I always buy collage stamps. I'm attracted to them. I take them out of the postal package and love them. Then they sit in my studio. To just use one is sort of cheating-I like to make my own collage! So, I love bull breed dogs and could not resist this set from Artistic Outpost. One of the themes I could choose from this month was "Dogs". I looked at this stamp and wondered how I could alter the collage. So I cut the window of the telephone booth out-put in a piece of transparentcy, and went looking for something or someone to put in the window. I found a little stamp of a flirty flapper from 100 Proof that just fit in the window so I added her and a bit of large red glitter, popped everything up with Scotch mounting tape-layered some flowers and it was done. It did take me more than 8 hours to make 10 of these. Whew! Hope they go to good homes.
