My Basset Girl
It has been a year this week that my sweet basset hound, Molly went to the Rainbow Bridge. She was my constant companion for almost 11 years and I miss her everyday. At Christmas I was presented with an incredible gift. Bev, a dear friend and one of the ladies from my monthly stamping class, asked her niece, Leslie Frick from Custom Creations by Rika to create a Molly sculpture for me. Using photos of Molly, she sculpted this amazing mini statue.
She captured Molly's features and coloring, even all her freckles and the little spot of white on her back.
Incredible amount of detail in a sculpture that is only 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall.
I will treasure this always and thank Bev and Leslie for such a wonderful gift. As most of you know, I am team leader for Karen's Doodles and I asked Karen if she would draw me a basset girl, and here she is.....
I sized and printed this cute little girl onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer. Copics used:
Basset - E17, E13, E51, W1
Eyes - E97
Hat - YR20, YR21
Flowers - B32, B21
She will be available soon for purchase from Karen's store. I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Heart to Heart Doily dies for the hearts and added leaves from their Dimensional Leaves 2 Large set. The DP is from Bo Bunny. Finished size is 6" square.
