Playing With Barkley :-)

I thought I would have a little break from my Christmas Cards today and have a play with Barkley :-) Isn't he the cutest little pup? I made this Easel card using the 'Everyday with Barkley' Cd and the Easel Card design 1 and believe it or not I decided to try out Crafters Companion Watercolour Card for the first time, well I'm converted! Love it! I'm putting an order in for more next week because its absolutely fab for CD Crafting, it actually reminds me of when I was obsessed with colouring my Penny Blacks on watercolour card, I loved the soft watercolour look when colouring animals, well the same applies when printing, the soft look is perfect for our furry friends. I also have a thing about animals noses.....I have to add glossy accents to them lol so Barkley was no exception, his nose got it too. Most of my embellishments on my card are from the CD too, all except the flowers and swirls but the bow, ribbon, tags and button are all from the easel card design 1 print out.  

Ahh you can see his glossy accents nose in this picture better :-p. 

Think I will have to go and make a purdey card now, well I have to look busy as the O/H is still out in the garden clearing out the shed and he may ask for help if he see's I'm not busy. I just pretend its an order I'm working on for Crafters Companion and he leaves me alone :-D What he doesn't know won't hurt him and anyway, the exercise is doing him good. Catch ya later x

Donna this is gorgeous. Isn't Barkley just the cutest? I love what you have done here, he is coloured to perfection!

I can't use the CC watercolour card as it's too thick for my printer, which is a shame as it's excellent when I stamp and colour onto it.

Thanks for sharing with us
