Doggy Love

The Freshly Made Sketches team is back with another fabulous sketch - this time from my hilarious and super-talented Australian friend Narelle.  Narelle has a super fun and versatile sketch for us.

I moved my panel down the card front a bit but pretty much stuck to the sketch.



This adorable image comes from You Have My Heart by MFT and I picked it up in their recent retirement sale, so it's NBUS.  I stamped and colored the girl and her dog and paper-pieced her dress.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I added some gray Copic shading on her dress.  After I'd die-cut the image I decided to mount it onto a circle die-cut, so in hindsight I probably should have just stamped it onto the circle in the first place 😄  I extended the grass and added some clouds with Tumbled Glass ink and the Mini Cloud stencil.



The horizontal panel was created using the same patterned paper with a black border top and bottom.  I also white-embossed the sentiment onto a black panel and die-cut with a Blueprints die.  As a finishing touch, I added the bone to show that the wee dog is more focussed on his mistress than his bone (unlike our dog, who lives for food!)


Thanks so much for visiting!  The design team have some gorgeous inspiration using the sketch, so I hope you pop over and check them out.

I'm entering this card into the AAA Cards Challenge, where they are looking for creatures, great or small.
