Relish To Embellish

Happy Sunday to all of you and welcome to another challenge for Sunday's With Crissy! I hope you had fun creating layers for the previous challenge!! This week we want to see how you embellish your cards! The image I decided to use for the challenge is called Doggie Pile and can be found at Squigglefly. I love all animals but I will say that dogs are my most favorite and just had to use these cuties!! I must tell you that I have never colored an image and actually tried to create fur for them. I was always wanting to try it but never did until now because I was afraid of how they would turn out. So, instead of always wondering how they would turn out I took the plunge and here's what they look like. It was surprisingly fun and quick! I think I would have probably spent more time trying to color it without the texture, LOL! Anyway, my goal was to make them look shaggy and I think they look pretty shaggy, LOL!!
So, to embellish my card I used dew drops, made a decent sized orange bow and added a paw print charm. Majority of us seem to love adding embellishments to our cards and I hope that you will join us for this challenge. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Hi Jodi! Oh wow, no one would have known this was your first time doing fur texture with Copics! This is brilliant! I just laughed when I saw their eyes and how you brought them out by not colouring around them. That just gives them so much more personality! I love what you did Jodi!
