Good morning folks! I hope where ever you are it's cooler than it is here! We've been having a heat wave that just sucks the juice right out of you. Yesterday reached almost 97 degrees, which in the Poconos is pretty hot!
Anyway, I have a sweet Lili of the Valley card to share with you using this adorable doggie running away with stolen franks. He's Fritz the dog from the Fritz and Fifi set. The stamps in this set are soo funny, highlighting all the mischievous antics our pets can get into!
I wanted to use a different coloring medium this time, getting kind of bored with the same old same old, so I broke out my Distress Inks and watercolored him. I remembered seeing a tutorial a while back from one of those gorgeous Scandinavian blogs where they showed how to deepen shading with Distress inks using a dry brushing technique. I can't for the life of me remember whose blog it was, but I did remember the technique, and used it for Fritz.
Stay cool and thanks for visiting!
