Doggie birthday

Hi everyone, I hope you had a blessed Christmas and are enjoying the rest of the festive season.
I've had a lovely time catching up with family.

This wee dog was one of my chrissy presents. I diecut him and was all set to use him when hubby suggested he needed fur! Snow tex to the rescue. I added black acrylic paint to colour it.

The background is one of my watercolors using Sandy Allnock's technique of faux glazed glass that I've used heaps of times. I love making them.

Di and the crew at the snippets playground are having a massive celebration so I'm joining in at
Pixie's Crafty Workshop. There are lots of lovely prizes to win and you only need to use 1 snippet.
The dogs and their collars and the grass are all cut from scraps, most of which went back into the box for another day as there was a tiny bit that might still be perfect for a diecut!

At Seize the Birthday there's an option of using red & white. I've gone for the anything goes birthday option.

Marianne scotty dog die; Poppy Stamps grass die; Snowtex paste; black acrylic paint; Kuretake and Finetec watercolor paints; distress inks; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
