Puppy Card With Grratitude

Hello, crafty friends!!

Today I wanted to dust off this stamp set I had bought long ago.  I had so many stamps but sometimes don't have the time to color them.  I LOVE dogs and enjoyed so much making this card!  I followed the color inspiration from SugarPea Designs to enter it into their current Inspiration challenge.


I tried to follow the color inspiration the best I could with the colors I have.  Of course, my W3 decides to run dry when I needed for this but I managed it to blend it pretty well.

Here are the Copic Sketch Markers I used:

Puppy:
W3, W1
Collar:
BG78, BG75, BG72
Dog House:
BG79, BG75, BG72, C7, C3, C1,
