Today I have another card using the Pampered Pooch Collection from Heartfelt Creations. This week with an adorable golden retriever having a bath! I love these golden images, especially where I have a golden retriever myself :) Here is my card!
Aren't they cute? As soon as I saw this collection, I couldn't wait to color this little guys!
The "frame" I created for the image is made with one of the card panels from the designer papers that I matted with green and added to a brown card base. The images were all colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps...my favorite way to color! The 2 little goldens were die cut with a matching die. The Best Wishes tag was die cut from the designer papers.
In case you're interested...here is my golden retriever, Bailey! The sweetest boy ever!
This picture was taken in my craft room by my desk...he's waiting for me to move the cords so he can lay down. Such a sweet face :)
