Canine Capers...Day Two of the November Kraftin' Kimmie Sneak Peeks!

***This is my second post of the day...please scroll down or just click HERE for the SCACD Release Day Blog Hop!!!***

Welcome to day two of the November sneak peeks for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Today we are introducing the newest offerings of Krafty Artist Emilie Goulet...she has created two fabulous sets featuring a variety of adorable pooches!!  The sets are called "Canine Capers 1" and "Canine Capers 2". Each includes three main image stamps and an assortment of coordinating sentiments.

This playful Dalmatian is from "Canine Capers 1". As always, Emilie's characters have such personality...I absolutely love this spotted pooch!! The plaid paper is a scrap of October Afternoon paper that I had kicking around. The other design papers are from My Mind's Eye "Breeze"...I love that the papers in the collection lend themselves so well towards masculine cards.



Ummmm....looking at this picture I just realized that I coloured the ball to look like Earth. lol 

The Dalmatian was stamped on Neenah with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. After using my markers, I added some additional shading with a brown Conte Crayon applied with a blending stump. Can you spot the HUGE mistake I made??? It's really obvious on this close up. The teal polka-dotted MME paper has lettering in the dots...and I glued it on UPSIDE DOWN. DOH! I managed to accomplish this feat even after telling myself REPEATEDLY to make sure that I glued it on the right way! lol This pooch was pop-dotted for a bit of dimension.



Copics: W00, E40, E42, E43, C3, C7, C9, R22, R27, R46, R59, Y17, BG000, B32, B34

Here's a look at the inside where I used one of the sentiments that comes with Canine Capers 1:

I never would have noticed the upside down paper, I was too busy staring at the way you colored the dog but isn't it funny how we always have to point out our mistakes to everyone!

Wow! I love how you made this guy pop. Amazing coloring. I think my dog did have an earth ball at some point :)

Oh he's just fabulous! I love the depth of shading on him he looks so 3d. I honestly wouldn't have spotted the mistake on the paper if you hadn't mentioned it - it's just an artistically interesting decision is all ;-)

Now I was looking at your paper as being a rug that the pup was laying on so upside down or not really isn't an issue. I love your Dalmatian and the earth ball is perfect in our upside down world.
