For Grand Father

As mentioned in my previous post I was lucky enough to recieve some stamped images from For Father as a Christmas present - & I was so grateful. For Father is a new set in the current Summer Mini Catalogue & I'm kicking myself that I didn't get it. Of course it is not too late, as it is still available until 31st March - so it could be making an appearance in my bookshelf soon.

Anyway, onto the card - I made this for my Grandfather's 80th birthday last weekend. He loves labradors & currently owns a beautiful yellow dog named Skip, although my dog is a little too orangy for my liking. I used More Mustard & So Saffron Stampin' Write Markers, but maybe should have used a little Creamy Caramel to tone it down abit.

Here is abit of a closeup of my watercolouring, certainly nothing extrodinary, but I was quite pleased with it. I have just coloured in the outline & shaded areas with Stampin' Write Markers & then used an Aquapainter to blend the colour.
