Inspired by real life!

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a very special card, inspired by real life! People who know me a little know how much I love my baby beagles and I am extremely lucky to have had an image made by the fabulous Christy at Tiddly Inks, based on my second baby beagle who arrived home last month :) So I couldn't resist using this Baby Beagle by Tiddly Inks today!

I printed my image and die cut it with an MFT circle die, to then focus on the colouring.

I coloured the sky first, using B00 and B02. I added a cloud in BV20, C0 and C1 to avoid having a completely flat sky.

I then coloured my beagle with E30, 31, 34, 44 and 47 for the browns. I added shadows to the white colouring them in W00 first to see where I would place them and then W0, 1, 3.

Next I coloured the grass with my usual combo of G28, YG01, 03, 17 and 67.

So all the Copics I used are:
Sky: B00, 02
Grass: G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67
Beagle Puppy: E30, 31, 34, 44, 47, W00, 0, 1, 3

Now to add more depth, I added a few details to my image: birds in the sky with a Copic Multiliner, a bit of blue Distress Ink aroung the edges of my scene and I used Posca and gel pens to add blades of grass and dots for flowers.

I then mounted my image on another MFT die cut and on a piece of BoBunny DP. The sentiment was done using Make it Crafty Alpha Chipboard painted in white acrylic. 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
