Dawson Dog, Prismacolor Pencils

Aloha everyone,

It's definitely the hot and muggy "dog days of summer," at least over here. So happy to get this new stamp set inked up. The little fluffy dog reminds me of our sweet fur baby Dawson. He passed away 18 months ago and I really miss him. He would follow me everywhere :)

I can't remember the last time I used Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. They were within reach and they are fun to use. I left parts of the puppy image white and just used a pale warm gray to add shading around the fluffy fur. The image is embossed with White EP and is being entered into the Avery Elle I♥U Challenge #27, "To Emboss"

For this challenge you can heat emboss, dry emboss, any kind of emboss. I just used heat embossing and tried to keep the card on the simple side because I have an annoying habit of adding way too much lol. The inside of the card reads "You're Dog-Gone Awesome!" with a 2 mm strip of the same polka dot pattern paper down one side of white panel.
