Karen's Doodles Puppy Love
I did not get a chance to create with this image for Valentine's Day but I thought he would be perfect for anytime you needed a love/hugs card. So here is Karen's Doodles adorable Puppy Love. Just look at those big puppy dog eyes, isn't he just the cutest?
So I sized the image in Adobe Photoshop Elements and printed him onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer. This is such a great image to color as the fur makes a perfect guide for shading. Copics used:
Puppy - E41, E42, E43, R20
Eyes - E97
Heart - R81, R83
I followed this week's sketch challenge from SplitCoast Stampers, SC269. What a great sketch, I love the diagonal pieces and all the layering. I turned the sketch vertical to accommodate the image. I again used paper from SEI, the Juliette collection. This time I used a smaller stripe pattern and a floral. Isn't it just gorgeous? Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.
And speaking of puppy love, here is my Zeke, a 7 year old basset hound I adopted from Bluegrass Basset Rescue in Kentucky at the age of 7 months. Isn't he a handsome boy? And you can tell he makes himself right at home on my leather couch!
He is great company while I am creating cards. He lays on the couch and contemplates life, lol.
