Michelle Weaver, Princess Matilda Loves to Stamp, sent me these cute Pug images, knowing I had a Pug named Bruno. I colored him in using my PRisma colored pencils and Gamsol. I looked at Bruno's picture to try and reproduce his coloring. He has a black face, which is a challenge, because when you are coloring you risk "losing" his eyes and nose! So I colored his snout a dark grey leaving some lighter shades. I used a little crystal effects on his nose. (Dogs' noses are supposed to be wet right?) I had this cute dog bone paper and just kept layering. I used the Fiskars rub on plates for the little paw prints. I used my scalloped heart punch on a shrinky dink and colored the back of it for color. IT actually looks better in person, it is a bit dark in the picture. I added some SU! hardware and a ribbon. Well Michelle, I hope I did this image justice! I sure tried! Thanks!
Since I am on a Pug kick I thought I would share this Layout with you. This is Bruno. I took these pics outside during the summer and thought they came out pretty well. The paper is Daisy D's, Creative Imaginations (I told you I use this paper A LOT!) . I used some Heidi Swapp tape and a Wild Asparagus title The paw prints were done with flock. His name is spelled out with some old chipboard from Lil Davis. See the tiny print of Bruno enclosed in the B? I had that done at a cool place on line called Moo Prints. Ever heard of it? They make tiny pics about the size of a microscope slide. They make 100 of these in a cute little box for $19.99. (You can choose 100 different pics!)
And last but not least, I won blog candy from Joslyn from, Here is What I Do. She is an amazing photographer and paper crafter. Check her blog out! Thank you so much Joslyn! I love everything! I even used the hardware on the Pug card above!
