A Quirky sketch

It's Doris' turn to set the Quirky Challenge and she has given us a sketch to use, or you can include hats - or both!
I used Sugar's Doggies from Ditzie Designs for my card - 50% of the profit goes to the Manchester Dog's home, and is an image I purchased a while back. I coloured her with Koh I Noor pencils, first time using them. I vaguely remember buying them and they must have been in a sale. I only have limited colours but I found that I can blend them beautifully with Sansador. I don't normally colour the whole sky but this image has cloud paw prints so I really felt I had to show them up, the blue was a little dark so I tried to lighten it by added white and blending it in. Sugar is a rag doll so she can have green hair if she wants to. One of the little doggies looks like one of mine, the one in her arms is like Alfie the Mini Schnauzer.
I think I need more colouring practice with these wood free pencils.
I die cut the panels with Spellbinders and the word with Impression Obsessions dies.

I don't have a hat so I followed the sketch. The paw print ribbons are a Crafty Ribbons exclusive.

Here is the sketch.

Now hop on over to Quirky Crafts to join in the fun, and maybe win one of the great prizes from our sponsors: That Craft Place, Meljen, and Ditzie Designs.
