Watercolor Crazy Dog with Distress Ink: Leaving a bit of sparkle

card2 (2)

Before I get to today’s project – quick note! I’m a guest blogger today over at The Foiled Fox. Find my post, tutuorial, and two cards HERE on their blog. It’s an online shop – free shipping over $50 so you might want to check them out! I know I’ll be keeping an eye out. They are now carrying some of the 28 Lilac Lane line, and I was happy to show some ideas for the Autumn kit.

Moving onto today’s project… I HAD to have the new Tim Holtz Crazy dogs, and I’m having a blast with them! Here is a YouTube video where I color the bulldog.

So, what to do with him? Well I paired him up with some 28 Lilac Lane pet embellishments and turned him into a card! Had to pair that cranky face with some sparkle.

I love how this guy turned out – just a bit of fun coloring and a lot of fun. I hope he’ll make somebody’s day sparkle! Looking for these supplies? See below for some links (note – affiliate links used thanks for your support!)

  1. I can’t believe you did a Bulldog today, my hubby got me a bulldog puppy for my Birthday, we pick it up on Friday. I am so excited !! By the way I have those Tim Holtz stamps, they are so cute, I love them. Hope your 3 doggies are getting along good.

  2. Love the crazy dogs and this one is very sparkly! The dimension from the black and the addition of your 28 Lilac Lane embellishments add so much to the fun watercolor.

  3. Great cards at the Foiled Fox May – and what a fun name for a shop!!
    I really “need” those dog stamps – soo cute!
    Great card! I love the way you kept adding colour.
