I didn't do it....

Is one of my favourite digis from Karen's Doodles and I thought this naughty little pup was perfect for the 'Monochromatic' challenge this week on Karen's Doodles UK Challenge Blog

The image is coloured with promarkers, some glossy accents on his eyes and nose and then distressed with some brown ink before matting onto some brown crocodile skin paper from my stash. For the background I've used some cream card stamped with flourishes (well birds tails from Elusive images) and again distressed with brown ink. The crackled brown background is made using a layer of cream acrylic paint, a layer of homebase crackle paint that I found in the shed and a layer of brown acylic paint.

I'm also entering this card for the following challenges
Cards for Men: Monochrome
Crafty Creations: distressing
Tuesday Taggers: Memories. This image reminds me of one of my dogs - Benji is a honey coloured german shepherd and when he was a puppy he managed to chew through a duvet and I came in to find the hall, stairs, landing and bedroom covered in white feathers. You wouldn't believe how  many feathers are in one duvet lol. This image always makes me smile as I can't see it without remembering that day.

Thanks for looking
