A Blue Dog

It's been a while since I managed a Penny Black challenge, but as I like a sketch, I was determined to do this one! Plus I had coloured the image a while ago and needed to use it!

Apologies for the slightly lopsided photo - I blame trying to get the table set for tea and try and take a photo of my card before the light went and stopping the boys from arguing - who says I can't multi task?!

Anyway, the blue backing card is all from my stash - the darker is a lovely slightly textured card but does not show up in the photo. The star printed paper is from Funky Daze.

I've double inked all the edges - in black and also dark blue just to take a bit of the blackness away. The image has been coloured with watercolour paints and from what I remember it only took me a few minutes.

The sentiment is my little Studio G alphabet stamp.

I liked this sketch and will probably use it again.

  • Star backing paper: Funky Daze, everything else from my stash
  • Image: Watercoloured and from Jozza
  • Sentiment: Studio G mini alphabet set
