Dogs 'n more dogs

A couple of wee doggy cards this evening ... just for a change ;)  I do seem to have gathered quite a selection of them over the years!

This card was inspired by this week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast - here's Holly's original.   I was inspired by her multi coloured critters and the embossed panels.
I've used Webster's Tilting his Head from Eat Cake Graphics.  I used a new technique for me - I flooded the images with water and then dropped in some colour by touching my paintbrush on my watercolour pencil nibs.

This one's based on Anita's card over at the Muse challenge - here's her original ->

I was inspired by Anita's theme of reflecting her DP in the main image panel, and followed her layout with the fancy sentiment die.  This DP has been in my sash for quite a few years now - but not quite 10 years Cheryl! ;)   (if you don't know Cheryl from Paper Panacea you should pop over for a look at her fab blog!)
I'll be tidying my desk tomorrow, so I'll get this Wags and Whiskers doggy into the stamp box or I'll just keep using him ;)  
Coloured with watercolour pencils;  sparkle added to his balloon and hat, and then clear gloss to the balloon and his nose. Sentiment popped up on dimensionals.  Purple gems from stash.

Oh, man, I love those multi-colored puppies! They even look a bit as though they've been tie-dyed. And I remember the hippy, tie-dyed days with great fondness. :) Both your cards today are super. Thanks so much for mentioning my blog. I'll do the same for you in a future post!!
