The card that took all day!

When you see this you may say, why did it take all day? Well the actual card did not take all day to make it just took all day to finish. I started and had to go run errands. Came home and began working on it again and my sister came over with a project that needed my help. When she left I finished the card and took the picture. I began the upload and then had to fix dinner. As soon as I post this I am going eat!

I started with the sketch challenge at Techno Stamper.

I also used the Father's Day/Masculine card challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. And since I used a wheel, it is for the Wheel challenge at Late Night Stampers. I flipped the sketch and moved my sentiment. I used a new core color - Marina Mist - as the base of this card. I really love how Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi - layer behind sentiment and dog layer - look together. I am just loving how the new colors blend so well. I also went back to my love - watercoloring - which I haven't done in a while. Here is my creation.

Hi Robbie,
I just looked up your blog as I saw you were on SLS & recognized your name from the online class we're doing...OMG I love your blog and projects, and esp. the doggy stuff!! The way you did the inside of this dog card to match and suggest movement brought a smile to my face....I'm a follower now! Mary L (
