BWAHHHHHHHHHHHH! This Kindred Spirit Sara is the first stamp in my collection with a vacuum! So it got me thinking about vacuuming* , and then my eye fell on Rachel's dog**... :)
I thought I might ink up just the dog or stamp the whole thing and cut him out, BUT I realized the way it's drawn, you can just snip him out of the corner to use him separately, and stick him right back in when you want him back next to the fridge, ala GinaK!
I bought a TON of Fun Flock to use for my hippy and hoppys but hadn't really broke into it yet. A great way to get really good coverage for him but not lose the details is to smear a bunch of glue in a shape/size a little bigger than the dog, cover with fun flock***, and after tapping off the excess, stamp the inked dog image into it(stamps great over the flock!) I cut him out and moutned him at the corner. Then I used a glue stick to make some swipes around the vacuum, but not behind so it looks like she's made a nice clean path! :)
That big smile on HER face? Well, she either has a grateful heart and loves having a pet to clean up after, or she sees a light at the end of the tunnel to this endless hair removal and is planning on sucking up the dog today****!! I LOVE the look on HIS face(guilty!/unsuspecting?)
