Dogs Delight

card3_311214Here we are in the middle of the Christmas season and looking to the New Year….where did the months go!  I hope you all had a very blessed time with family and friends over Christmas, and have a special fun time planned for tonight!  We see in the New Year very quietly 🙂

It has been a long time between posts for me and I hope that the coming year will bring me more creative time because I’ve missed it.  It’s been a combination of so many things, starting a new job, closing one online store and setting up another (still in the process of!), but I’m finally seeing the end of the tunnel.

A few months ago now I made this card for a work colleague who was saying goodbye to a much loved member of their family, and only found the images on my camera this morning so I thought I would share.

I used a gorgeous image by Mo Manning and coloured with Copic markers.  I don’t have all the colours I used written down anywhere, but I will try to remember in the future to make a note.  It’s always a great help when I’m surfing on blogs to see what colours have been used!

A little bit of added shading using a black pastel pencil as well.  I love pencils but I love my Copics as well so the day I made this I had a blast pulling them out once again!

Just a bit of a close up.  As most of us are I’m still learning the art of colouring and shading, but love the playing!!  In the process of organising my office so that its a little more user friendly, but I hope to be back soon!

  1. Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming New Year. 🙂 In a few hours I may be wanting to trade New Year’s parties with you. My Ms 19 is hosting a party here shortly and guests are sleeping over. The last sleep over party we had no one slept.

    I hope to see you share some of your creativity in 2015 as time allows and maybe details of your new store 🙂

    Gorgeous card and amazing colouring.
