Butch and Mimi


So the Bellariffic Friday animals arrive a day late. I woke up bright and early to finish this for you all and I hope you likey.

I'm a big dog fan myself but Butch and Mimi from Stamping Bella were too resistable. If you've followed Lindabella you know that she has a cute but demanding little Westie named Bessie that reminds me of these two. Now she was lucky enough to have the living model, I had to wing it. So don't look too closely at the ears...I think they are a tad bit too dark. Hmpf!!! I started with Bellas's Bestest paper and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Coloring was done with copics and surround shading was added with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol.

I ran to fellow Babe Danabella's blog last Sunday to find the Sweet Sunday sketch. I was psyched to use sketch 133 as my quide ... it doesn't fit the sketch exactly because I didn't want to use two papers. I had this piece of dp from Fancy Pants sitting in my stash that I wanted to use and I couldn't find anything else to go with it. Funny, I have a TON of paper or so the hubby would say, but I hate when you can't find coordinating pieces. Guess that means it's time to buy some more. Hehe. Anyway, I added a hand dyed seam binding ribbon, some metal brads applied with Scrap Dots and a computer generated sentiment. Those lovely circles were all done with Nesties. Of course, I also had to whip this through the sewing machine for a nice finished look.

Hubby is working so I'm creating and doing some laundry and picking up. Hope you are enjoying your weekend as well.

See ya later folks.
Cath
