CCEE Stampers Get Punch Happy

 
 
Welcome to week two of our CCEE Stamper February challenges with our hostess, Lynn.  She has challenged us to have a little Valentine fun.  Here is her challenge......
 
Back when I was in grade school, every Valentine’s Day my classmates and I had such fun creating Valentine Critters to decorate our Valentine boxes. The task for today is to create an animal of any kind on your card in which you use heart shapes for some of its body parts.

A while ago I had started saving punch art ideas on a Pinterest Board.  It came in handy with this challenge.  I adapted one of the collected pins to make my dog.  Hearts were used for the hind legs and nose.  Ovals were used for the head, body, snout, and ears.  I'm not sure the name for the leg punch but it is a long, slim, rounded rectangle which I bent to make paws.  I also sponged with white near some of the edges. Circle punches were used for the eyes.  I drew in the 'freckles; and mouth and added a touch of shine to the nose.  The sentiment is from a Sweet 'n Sassy dog stamp set.

Now be sure to check out the fab punched creations by the rest of the team......I can't wait to see them at the CCEE Stampers Blog.
