My brother’s birthday is coming up this month and I usually make him a card with something relating to cars on it. However he also has a mad dog so when I saw this image at The Paper Shelter, I just had to use it. I did do a bit of genetic engineering on the dog because my brother’s dog is more lab/retriever than rottweiler!

I printed out the line art version of the image onto stamping card and coloured it with the copics. I tried to make the dog the right colours but did not have a photograph so it is guess work. My brother is a tad older than the lad in the image so I have done the greying hair to try to make it more realistic! (He’ll love me for that but then he is younger than me.)
I cut the card blank down to make a 15cm square card then used the die to emboss the border. I trimmed my image down to fit and edged it with a blue pen before attaching it to the front of the card.
As he does not read my blog there is no danger of spoiling the surprise by posting this before his birthday, I just hope he likes it!
Thanks for stopping in. Take care.
