Dog Days of Summer

To celebrate those hazy, lazy dog days of summer, the Bar-Tenders are challenging you to create a dog-themed card at Raise the Bar! I inked up this image from Lili of the Valley and colored with Copics. Though my baby girl is 23 y.o., this picture brought back memories of her in the summer in our backyard swing...always with an animal nearby. The layout is for Jen Del Muro's August Sketch For You To Try challenge. I doodled a frame using a Tombow marker (472). I nearly ditched this card because the colors just didn't make me happy, but didn't have the energy to do it over after a LONG day of chores!

STAMPS: Small Phrases (Verve) - sentiment; Lili of the Valley
PAPER: My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose "Gertie" DP, Blue Bayou, So Saffron, White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Corner chomper, Plaid EF (Sizzix), Charming oval dies by Verve, Pearls, Star border Die-namic by MFT, Copics.
