A Dog is not just for Christmas

Over at the Vera Lane Studios Facebook group there is a Christmas Card/tag trade. 

I have made this tag, featuring the ever so sweet dog, from the set Little Whimsical Witch :

The pooch is colored with copics and gelli roll pens, his eyes have a layer of crystal effects. Once I had colored the dog, I put some blending alcohol onto a piece of felt and pounced all over the dog to soften up the look, to make it look more like a dogs coat. The leash is made from gold thread. 

The tag was run through my big shot with a retired Stampin' Up! embossing folder, then colorized with dylusions sprays. When it was dry I added inka gold over the raised parts of the snowflakes. 
Look how shiny it it in this close up :

The sentiment was printed from my computer, the washi ground and co-ordinating ribbons added to the tag. The final thing was to go around the edge with Tsukineko fantastix all purpose ink in champagne mist.

Anybody from the UK will remember the adverts that used to be on TV, and it is very true : 
A dog is for life, not just for Christmas x
Love your pet x
