As I was typing the title of this NEW Whipper Snapper Design image I realized the reference! It must be to Teddy Roosevelt's foreign policy, "Speak softly and carry a big stick". I'm not sure this adorable dog would speak softly! Gotta love a dog with a big bark!
Was I rambling? Sorry! Here's the LINK to the image at Whipper Snapper Designs. So cute and fun to color. Mine is stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with a paintbrush and reinkers from Stampin' Up. I loved the non-uniform shape of the image. When die-cut from a square it gave me that nice opening for a sentiment on the front of the card (on SU's oval punch).
The dog's nose and eyes both have some glaze pen added to them for a little extra shine and there are stickles on his/her kerchief as well as the grass and leaves. Such a pretty dog!
Thanks for visiting! Come back soon, won't you?
