Wrinkly Canvas Pug ATC

Yet another craftster ATC! I wish I had taken some in-progress shots, but yep! I made the pug from scratch! I gathered each wrinkle and bit by bit, hot gluing the canvas to a pug-skull shaped piece of cereal box. Then I tucked all the rest of the edges behind and secured it all with more hot glue. I used some watered down acrylic to add the darker areas by the ears and muzzle, then glued on ears, seed beads for the nose and eyes, the tongue.
I was pretty pleased with how he turned out. Not really my usual, but I thought the two tiny seed beads for the nose were pretty funny(You can click the pictures to see them up close) :)

I made some tiny inchie books today! They're for swaps, though, but you'll see them soon enough..... Happy Wednesday!

I am telling you now That Rocks button is going to get worn out over at Craftster when everyone sees this. I swear that is the best ATC I have ever seen.

I arrived at your Blog from the Stampotique Bloghop, but because I make ATC's myself I went to look for your ATC's.
I love them all, but I think this one's just awesome!
How did you manage you get it so real looking! What a great job!
