This was for Poosel in the Craft My Pet swap. It's a two-walled diorama, the walls are two pieces of foam core board covered in wallpaper.  The black dog is wool and silk, it was really hard to find fiber as shiny as he is!  The rawhide and kong are polymer clay and the garbage can is a creamer cup with a piece of a grocery bag that I candle-melted into shape.

I also included her gecko:

And an outdoor scene with a friend:

I have about a million more pictures, didn't want to get too carried away here. Smiley

My mom walked up behind me when I was checking this out and said "oh, that's a cute dog!"  I had to tell her when she was right up on it that in reality it isn't a dog.  Really cute.  I like the second scene.  Anyone who has a mischievous little dog would see the humor in that.   Wink

Awesome!  I especially love the one with the turned over trash can, and the mini kong - great details!

I love the details and the fun of setting the scene with the overturned trash can.

This is great!  I love the picture with the overturned trash bin, just got a little cross at my whippet just thinking about it.  He does this all the time...

Nice job!

This is soooo cool! The PC Kong and rawhide are PERFECT! And the way you did the trash can is soooo clever! Love it!
