Scruffy Mutt!

Well hello there, I thought it was about time I cracked open my new packets of Tim Holtz Crazy dogs stamps.........oh yeah, these called out to me the moment I saw them advertised!

As the owner of a Westie,  I chose the scruffy Terrier as my first image to colour and here are the results:


Now, I have decided to try and up my game a little and not only focus on the card front, but also decorate the inside and inspired by Jennifer McGuire, attempt to jazz up the envelopes where possible too! 

Unfortunately, whilst photographing this little chap, I totally forgot to take a picture of the inside - basically its a replication of the distressed background on the front with a rectangular white die cut insert for a sentiment - I left it blank so I could would be free to use the card for any occasion.

Here is the scruffy pooch in more detail.......To get the texture of all that fur, I went over some of my Copic work with coloured pencil.


Oh and here is a picture of the envelope.  For those of you not too familiar with these stamps, the dogs come in two sizes, the larger ones are just the dogs with a few accessories, the second set are smaller and include the Crazy Cats too, they are also the mirror image of the larger images!


I hope that it makes the recipient smile even before they have opened it and you never know it might give the Postie a giggle too!!!

LOVE the texture! I would have LOVED to see a video of how you did that! Ever thought of including videos?

Debbie said...

Wow! This is AMAZING! I wouldn't begin to know how to get half the texture you've achieved here. I feel like if I touch my screen where the doggie is, I will be able to ruffle his fur.

So loved seeing what you did to the crazy dog stamp, I just love it. I've also had 3 wastes and they are just the best, so partial to the terrier look and you nailed it! Thanks so very much
