A Recipe for Adorable

The challenge at Meljen's Designs this week is a recipe challenge.  The recipe is 3 colors, 2 papers, and one bow.  The challenge at Wee Memories this week is All Things Adorable.  So easy to combine these two challenges because I think Meljen's Designs images are so adorable!!

This week I decided to use the image Lovey Pup that I won in a recent blog hop.  You can find him in the Whimsy Stamps store.  I have had him printed for a while but decided to color him using my new favorite technique, colored pencils blended with baby oil.  I thought I was in love with the alcohol ink markers, but I feel like I have much more control over where the color goes with the colored pencils.  For the recipe, I used red, creamy caramel, and baby blue as my colors.  The papers I have had forever just waiting for the perfect card.  I added a little faux stitching with a fine Sharpie and a tiny rhinestone for the tag on his collar.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
