I get excited when my punch art comes out the way I hoped.
Is "Hot Dog!" used universally for expressing positive excitement? Or is that a Texas/Southern/American thing?
If you gave this little guy a different facial expression you could use him with "Hot Dog!" but with this look on his face I thought he was more "Ruff Day"...
I tore the paper and used the SANDED background for Ruff=Rough because I was being my usual "clever" self . (Read "clever" with a very sarcastic tone in your eyes)
Here's the details for the Dog on a Bun:
Bun - sahara sand – curly label – rounded the middle point with scissors
Mustard – more mustard (surprise!) – same as bun but use the short side of curly label punch
Body – small oval
Tail – branch from 2 step bird (or cut a thin strip)
Neck – word window – trimmed thin lengthwise
Snout – small oval – trimmed to thin one end
Nose – tip of word window – repunched with same
Teeth – retired slot punch (could just use a strip)
Mouth behind teeth - ½ of small heart
Eyes – white – small heart
Eyes – black – tiny circle from owl (or use a marker)
Eyelids – circle itty bitty punch pack cut in half
Ears – small heart – trimmed with scissors
Feet – circle from itty bitty punch pack around 2 of the bumps at end of modern label
Add tiny white highlights with gel pen on nose and eyes.
I like this much better than my first dachshund attempt - so the moral of this story is...
Keep Punching - Improvement will come!
