Tucker {S.W.A.T. Drill #15: Stamp, Stitch, Spray}

This is our family dog, Tucker.  We adopted him from a rescue shelter when he was "8 months to two years" old - according to the staff there.  More like 8 months thank you very much!  He's been an amazing addition to our family - he's small enough for both of the kids to walk him yet fierce enough to protect our home from those nasty free-range cats in our neighborhood.

Tucker is a true terrier (we think of his breed as more terror than terrier) because he learns quickly, he loves to play, and he's a crafter.  Yes, I have a dog who can craft.  He will take a roll of toilet paper and do the most amazing crafts with it - all over the house - so bonus! - interior decorator is added to his list of accomplishments.

Drill #15 at S.W.A.T. is to create a card, layout or other project where you Stamp, Stitch (either faux, machine or hand) and use Spray Mists.  I did just that!  I stamped the paw prints all over the layout, hand-stitched through his name to anchor those letters and then I used spray mists to create the blue droplets throughout.  I also added a smear of gesso to help those paw prints and to make it a bit messy - noticed the paper that he did chew up for me while working on this layout?

One last thing - look closely at the photo - there's a sign behind him that says "Stay for the Fun" - this is true!  He's fun and silly and I'm glad that he's ours.
Have a scrappy happy day and don't forget to link up your projects to S.W.A.T. so that we can drool (ahem) all over your creations!
