A doggy calendar and a silly fishie


 So here's August's calendar page hot off the press ... yes I know it's already the 7th LOL ;)
I was very lucky to win a Simon Says Stamp challenge a few weeks back, and the TH Crazy Dogs set was one of my choices.  I reckon you'll be seeing quite a few more cards starring those fab doggies.  I've coloured (or not!) this one to look like Ruby-doo and gave her a nice red collar.  Clear gloss added to her eyes and nose.  Usual wonky hand written calendar, one of these days I'll figure out how to write in a straight line.  I've also used some new coloured Ranger enamel accents which I'm lovin, the red one has a pinky tinge to it, but that's OK.  For my background, I used some green watercolour paint and just kinda splodged it on roughly.  And of course, a doodled border ;)

My second card also uses some new goodies from my win - Avery Elle's 'That Bites' set.  I've coloured my fish with watercolour pencils, added some splatters, added clear gloss to his eyes and teeth and then Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the rest.
I die cut some waves and then covered most of them up with my stitched circle ;)
