A painted friend

I love this cute painted horse digital image by KnK Designs!  And that little bunny character needs a name!  There's a contest to name him right now on the KnK Blog!
While the horse works well with red, white, blue, I wanted to go brown.
I watercolored using my Tombow markers and a waterbrush on watercolor paper.
Thanks for coming by to visit today.  I'm so glad you stopped by!  Happy week!

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

My new blog is done and ready for posting!!  I am so excited!
The digital elements are designed by NatashaNaSt designs.  I bought the Soft Vintage element pack at 9th & Bloom and used Photoshop to arrange the background and banner and other things like the signature and sidebar titles.   Hope to see you soon!
