Double doggies for Daddy's

I have been a busy bee over the last couple of days........making duplicate Father's Day cards.

A little while ago I saw an amazing card made by Tammie Edgerton, One Happy Stamper who in turn had been inspired by Sandy Allnock and I knew that at some point I had to give it a go myself!  Thank you ladies - you rock!!!

Now I am still a rookie using a Misti and I am sure there must have been an easier way of doing it......but I just could not get my head around how to print the reverse dog (his face) so that it fitted perfectly on to the front one when sandwiched together!  If anyone has an idiots guide as to how to do it please please send me a copy, this idiot would be oh so grateful :)

Here are the 2 fronts.....not too dissimilar, one pooch is a tad darker than the other but hey apart from on here the cards are never going to be seen side by side!


And as for the inside image that caused me so many issues:


As you can see the little pooch got a tad creative himself and used his beloved stick to write my Dad and Father in Law a little message on the fence!


The back page was coloured using a Copic Airbrush with some Isopropyl alcohol on a sponge to sort of create clouds, not that you can see them too clearly in this picture.

Oh and here is one last picture, showing both front and inside, well these cards did give me major brain strain, so why not!!!
