Gone to the Dogs

I got an email newsletter from Daisie Company announcing a new collection, "Gone to the Dogs" by Shelly Comiskey.  I love her art, I have many of her rubber stamps from Whipper Snapper.  I wish she would sell her designs as digi images (my pocketbook hopes she doesn't, lol)  Of course I could not resist the new collection, it has TWO basset hounds in it, the one on the right is named Floyd, don't know who the other one is.  Let's call him Lloyd. 


The images all come in .png format with transparent backgrounds.  So using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I sized and combined the two bassets, the bowl of bones and the dog house.  Then I added text of "Home Sweet Home" to the sign above the door.  Using my Spellbinders Curved Rectangles die, I cut the image out and airbrushed BG01 around it before removing it from the die.  The DP is from the Basic Grey Max and Whiskers 6x6 paper pad collection.  Finished size is 5 x 7.  If these were digi images for me to color in, I would buy every one of them!

At first glance, I thought you had colored these little guys and I was completely in awe! Now that I've read it and found out they were already colored? Not so much... :-) Just kidding! You did a great job with them and the Max and whiskers papers are perfect.
