Stamp Something - dog days of summer!

Our challenge for this week at Stamp Something is 'dog days of summer' and you can either use dog or summer images.  We're sponsored by Bunny Zoe's, who are providing our winner with a £10 gift certificate.



I've used a cute Barney image from DigiStamp Boutique... I had to do a quick colouring alteration this afternoon, because when I saw my card on the challenge blog, it finally dawned on me why it didn't look quite right - I'd coloured his legs to match his tummy instead of brown like the rest of him.  So I've altered it with pencil... still not sure I've got it quite right though!

He's coloured with a combination of promarkers, flexmarkers (I have some samples from Letraset and just can't wait until the other colours are released!!!) and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are Dovecraft, with dark brown card from Papermill Direct.  Sentiment is Craftwork Cards, flowers and button from my stash.

Lovely cute creation. I luv the image too.

Jenny said...

Very sweet! I love the pastel colour scheme too :)
I've heard that the flex markers are good and extra colours to the promarkers so you don't double up.
