CDS Sneak Peek - Dog Days

Yay! It's finally time to show you one of my newest sets! I have to admit that I really have a special fondness for this sweet little cutie, after all she's modeled after my 17 year old English Cocker Spaniel, Olivia (Bitty Bits is her nickname). This set is called Dog Days and it has some fun sentiments, 2 dogs and a doghouse, as well as a few doggie accessories ;) You can see the full set over on Lori's Blog.

I watercoloured the dog with my Tombow Markers and Aqua Painter and then sponged in the cloud scene. I added the second layer to pop up the dog and make her 3D. Just a reminder for those of you that are interested in learning to use Tombow Markers, the online class that I am teaching over at My Creative Classroom is starting this Thursday! I'm soooo excited! :) Ahem, now back to your regular scheduled programming ;0)

As you can see by the picture above...I got a little crazy with my cuttlebug! I'm pretty sure that I was busy singing along to my favourite tunes instead of monitoring my over use of embossing folders and embellishments. Oh well, where this card is concerned...I guess anything goes! lol

This is very sweet, Kim. I must say that you are wonderful with your sewing machine too! I can't round a corner evenly to save my soul. What stitch length do you use and what needle size?
