Gone to the dogs!

And the story of the dogs continues! I colored these Woffin' it Up dogs up a couple weeks ago to give to my work pod-mate Matthew for his 30th birthday…YIKES, I am biologically old enough to be his mother…LOL! Let’s see, as I was starting my life as a programmer, he was just entering grade 1! OH MAN, retirement has got to be hitting me soon.

Alright, back to the card. I had it in my head that Woofin' it up dogs would have been absolutely PERFECT for the last sketch challenge I sponsored over at Emily’s blog. Paper was picked, image was all stamped and ready to go and Meahni emailed me all excited that she just colored the DOGS! HMPH! Well I thought for SURE she would use it for the sketch….like it was PERFECT….so I set it aside, not wanting to submit the same image the same week as my sistah…you may know that Paula and I have a thing about posting the same image too close together…we like to leave ‘breathing’ room in there. And it’s funny, we NEVAH tell each other which image we used for the challenge until maybe Thursday…and we also NEVAH share the card with each other prior to the big reveal on Friday…we like the surprise! Typically I don’t like surprises, I actually hate them…even at the ripe old age of 50 I still sneak around looking for presents at Christmas! HAHAHA!

So now I decide it’s time to post the dogs, I have them all ready to go and PAULA posted them on Sunday. Oh well, not much breathing room there. I hope you enjoy them all! I especially like that Meahni googled each breed so she was sure to use appropriate colors…on the other hand Paula colored my little Bessie the Westie black but I am sure Bessie doesn't care since Paula did give her some home made biscuits in her own personalized jar.

As usual, the image was colored in copics with prismacolor pencils and gamsol used for grass and shading. I cut the image out with my deckled edge nestie and left the die in place while I sponged the edges with wheat ink and a dauber.

Copics used:
W00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 7
C00,0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
E40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 49
E13, 33, 15, 11
R00, 02, 24, 29

Have a wonderful day everyone...and go hug your puppy!

Isn't it great to see all the different versions of this image! I love it! Your card is gorgeous!!
I'm confused, isn't Bessie a scottie? cause if she is then how come you coloured her black too? or is she a yorkie? Very confused!
I was convinced Paula created her own version of a sheep dog, a white one, but I googled that too, and there is such a thing! LOL!!
