Gingham Beagle

Hi!   I made a card for the Digital Tuesday challenge today which is to use gingham.
I used gingham paper and gingham ribbon.

The cute beagle is from KnK Designs.
I had a beagle mix once, but after the third time I came home and had to go hunting the streets to find him, I realized that the best thing for him was to give him back to the trainer.  I just wanted a pet that would stay put already and he obviously needed a bigger yard, LOL.
 I watercolored with Tombow markers and a waterbrush on watercolor paper.
  • Image: KnK Designs, Sentiment I made on my computer in Word program
  • CS/PAPER: designer paper from Grahic45, CDS hot cocoa, cream CS,90 lb. Canson watercolor paper
  • INK: printer, Tombow markers 098, 947, 990, 899, N15, 946
  • ACCENTS/TOOLS: waterbrush, sewing machine, basic grey button, Twinery twine, brown gingham ribbon, spellbinders tag die, MS border punch, corner rounder punch, CTMH bitty brads, foam dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your day!

Wow, is that cute!!! I love how you colored him!! And the gingham paper and ribbon is so pretty! The beagle mix you said you had sounds a lot like a labrador mix we had when I was little. More often than not he ran off to the nearby collage campus and begged food off of the dining hall! He wasn't with our family for very long. :) Thanks for sharing!!
