Hi there (waving)

 I released a new digital stamp a couple of weeks ago and it is still currently on sale. The digi is of my awesome dog Toby whom we had to put to sleep a few months back. He was 18yrs old, super furry and cuddly. An all rounder great dog.

I printed my stamp on kraft paper and away i went using my pencils. here you can see the polychromos white and inktense white

Getting into his black collar and eye

Adding fur to his face

Two eyes looking at me :)

Bit of a tip to get really dark black is to go over with indigo and then black on top of that.
you can see here i have used some blending with odourless thinner. It helps get the colour on the card and then i can go over with the pencils.

Onto his front leg

Here he is all coloured. One gorgeous tri coloured border collie :)

I am going to now put this into a frame and hang it in my craft room :)
