Angus Dog

I started colouring this neglected image, called Angus, for my Aunt.  I've used my polychromo pencils and doodled around the frame to add a little more interest. 

Texture has been added through the use of scrim (over the spotty paper), some rafia and by embossing the stripes.  I added some pen to the stripes too.  All of the paper was dug out from my stash and the Forever Friends sentiment was also used for the first time in months and months and months!!!!

I used the fab sketch at Sketch and Stash and I liked it so much, that I used it again:

This time, I tried white on white and added interest and texture by embossing each piece and edging it with Silver Stickles (another less used bit of stash!).  I made a scrim flower (have I told you how much I love this stuff?!) and attached it using a button and paper flower. 

I would also like to enter:
Crafty Creations - Stripes (first card)
Paper Pretties - Masculine card (first one again)
