A Boy's Best Friend...

I've used another of the stamps I won in the Sugar Nellie Birthday goodie bag for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl Challenge...this one's called 'A Boy's Best Friend'. I've watercoloured him to match the 'Papa' papers by Fancy Pants Designs. I distressed all of the edges using my distressing tool and inks, and added some Papermania brads and some garden string. For the 'extra' challenge element of 'Zig-zags', I used a CutterBee Bug to make the holes for some zig-zag faux stitching around the edges of all the papers...which also have zig-zag patterns on them.
