Tilly and Scooby

Hello, today I have a portrait to show you that I did for Mum to give to one of her friends at work of her two dogs, Tilly and Scooby. For this I used my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils and Zest-It Pencil Blend on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs Hot Press Watercolour paper.

I hope you like this portrait and thanks for visiting.

Happy Birthday Mouse & Toadstools

Hello, today I have a card and matching gift tag to share with you that uses Hobby Art's July Monthly Special Home Tweet Home.

The background was made with Distress Oxides in the following colours: Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Cracked Pistachio, Faded Jeans and Walnut Stain. I also added some text with a stamp from the Words stamp set, also from Hobby Art with the Walnut Stain Oxide.

I then added some Imagination Crafts Starlight Metallic Paint in Rich Gold using a damaged paint brush around the border of the backgrounds.

The grass was added using Copic markers and the Toadstool die is the Edge Mushrooms by Joy Crafts. The toadstool die was also coloured using the Distress Oxides and white gel pen details were added.

The images were stamped with 'Tuxedo Black' Memento Ink and were coloured using Arteza Expert coloured pencils and white gel pen details. I finished off with a stamped sentiment, some wood mushrooms and pearls.

The tag was made in the same way and some ribbons from my stash were added to tie them together.

I hope you like this card and tag set and thanks for stopping by.
