Elzybell's Challenge #19 & Cute Card Thursday #58 - Mirror Mirror

Isn't this dog image from Elzybells cute? There is a matching image of a dog carrying a rolled up newspaper but I like this one best, he is giving a very feeble tail-wag because he knows he shouldn't tear up the paper but sometimes you just can't resist temptation :).

I've used Rachel's sketch from this week's Elzybell's Challenge and I've included lots of gold shiny card, which means I'm also entering it for Cute Card Thursday's Mirror, Mirror Challenge.

I've coloured the dog with my Copics; I'm a bit underwhelmed with the effect I'm getting, doesn't look all that professional :(. The edge started out with faux stitching drawn in with a Pigma Micron pen. Annoyingly I smudged a corner so went over it with a waterbrush and Distress Ink to blend it in. To my surprise, the "permanent" ink ran into the blend... Hmm...

Flowers are Hero Arts, Design Paper is from a gorgeous Basic Grey pad I bought at Ally Pally. The card blank is left showing in the background, I like the contrast of brown matte with gold shiny.
