This is probably the fastest card I've ever made. This little shih tzu is a digital freebie named Kiki, from Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks. I saw the digi on the Tiddly Inks blog yesterday, printed it out and colored it and finished the card by the evening. Isn't she a cutie?
I Googled "shih tzu" to see how to color one of these breeds. Originally, I was going to put a heart in her mouth, but in the end, I decided to leave her plain and just drew in some grass. I followed Kim's great grass tutorial here.
After coloring her lightly with Copics, I used a white pigment pen to draw in her fur. Here's a shot of the Copics that I used:
I wasn't sure what sentiment to use with Kiki, and my daughter--a teacher--suggested "I woof you" and I liked it! The dotty background was a piece that was waiting in my scrap bag, so all I did was die cut the back piece and the card was done.
Visit the Tiddly Inks store for more great images from Christy. And stay tuned because she'll be adding more images for release on January 11th!
