German Shepherd II

This is my final entry for the Digi Doodle Shop Design Team.  I will greatly miss this wonderful team.  The one consolation is that I will still be able to shop and get their gorgeous images.  Keep those animals coming!  I have been struggling with my artwork lately and am not really satisfied with how I'm doing.  I am planning on taking some classes so I can better learn shading and some other coloring techniques.  A natural born artist I am not. 

This image is from Digi Doodle Shop and is available here.  The papers are from my stash.  I used my new distressing toy from Zutter.  it works pretty well and saves alot of work.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Anything Goes Boyz to Men
Craft Your Passion Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can Animals
Sweet 'n Sassy Cats and Dogs
Sundays With Crissy Animals
Paper Pretties  Masculine
Paper Shelter Anything Goes
penny's Paper Crafty Anything Goes
Divas by Design Favorite Things (animals)

Hi Diane,
So sorry to hear you are leaving us - I will miss you and your fantastic colouring. Who is going to showcase the brilliant animal images in such a lifelike way when you are gone??
Love this card - he looks just like a dog I had when I was younger. As soon as I saw this stamp I knew you would choose it - lol.
Take care hunny and I hope you will join the challenges.

Oh Diane, I hope that my saying I'm crushed that you are leaving DDS makes you feel very worthy as an artist. You are one of my all time favorite designers, and I pray with every effort that you'll want to come back some day. Not only is your work stunning each and every time, you have been a real joy, and I shall miss you :(

Mom did make this stamp with you in mind, and I think you colored it beautifully..don't EVER doubt yourself.

That's a wonderful German Shepherd image and I love how you brought it to life with color! Great card! Thanks for playing along with the SNSDC this week!

Great card Diane, your colouring has really brought this image to life. You have fab colouring skills and will really miss seeing your work, so sorry you're leaving us, but like Judy, I'm hoping someday you've join us again.

Good luck in all that you do in the future.

Oh WOW, WOW and WOW! Love that! It's like a real one! My mom has a shepherd and he has just those deep, brown eyes!

You may think it's not perfectly colored, but I think it's awesome!


Poppet said...

I think your colouring is wonderful Diane, your image really has character and the shades you have used I would say are perfect. The packing papers also look fab with the distressed edges.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us at Crafting When We Can Challenges. :-) xx
