Some more silhouettes up!

I have added an Australian Shepherd, a Boston Terrier, and a Siberian Husky.  Plus a fluffy long-haired cat so the feline end of the population doesn't feel left out!  I have a short-haired cat in the works too, plus a number of other dog breeds.
The Labrador Retriever, the German Shepherd, and the Samoyed from the previous post are all sold out, but I do have them on my list to recut.  Feel free to drop me a note if you are ready to get your breed and I can bump it up in the cutting list!

First set of memorial silhouettes up on Etsy!

-ETSY LINK-

I have been working on a set of simpler dog-breed memorial silhouette cuttings with wording, and I just got the first batch up on Etsy this morning.  Bernese Mountain Dog, Rough Collie, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Samoyed.  More coming soon!



---------------------------------
Memorialize a beloved companion, celebrate the dogs you love, or gift a friend who lost a loved one. One hand-cut paper silhouette-style dog portrait with mosaic-cut heart and wording. These dog pieces are my original designs from photos I have taken and sketches I have made, and are cut individually by hand with a craft knife.  Since the pieces are cut by hand and the mosaic design is cut free-hand, the layout may vary slightly from piece to piece- the pieces pictured above are just samples.
I only cut one piece of a breed design at a time, so if your breed is pictured/listed but not available, someone else probably just got to it first and I am likely in the process of re-cutting the design. Feel free to reach out and let me know you are waiting for it, and I can make sure it is at the top of my list.

-------------------------------------------------
UNMOUNTED:
You will receive the cutting itself with no attached backing or matting, packaged to keep it from being bent or damaged in transit. Cuttings are approximately 6" x 4".  *NOTE* the reverse/backward side of the cutting may have some glue, paper, or pencil marking since this is the side I work from while cutting.

MOUNTED:
The cutting will be attached to a white acid-free backer board, matted with your choice of white and black or double-white matting (external mat dimensions of 8" x 10"), and enclosed in a clear plastic envelope for protection.
-------------------------------------------------
CUSTOMIZATION:
I can make any of my pictured dog breed silhouettes with different wording (with limits on the wording length and content), in most cases with a couple weeks to a month lead time.  If (in my judgement) the wording you choose is common enough phrasing that I can continue to use the design after I make it for you, the cutting could be priced the same as the stock listing.  If you want your dog's name or something more personal, there would be a custom work charge in addition. Please contact me for details.

I am currently working on a number of other dog breeds.  If you don't see your breed here but you REALLY want to buy a piece, feel free to contact me and put a word in for it. I am mostly working more popular breeds first, but if I know you are set to buy one I can bump your breed up in the list.  :)

And if you really want the silhouette to be of your OWN dog (mixed breed, doesn't resemble the breed standard, s/he is just super awesome and distinctive and needs to be memorialized individually), I can do a custom silhouette from your appropriate photo.  Custom work charges will apply to this as well.

I can also do any of the pictured dog silhouettes in a larger size.
