Welcome back for Day 3 of January Release Week at Newton’s Nook Designs. Dog lovers, today is your day! Especially all of you who are owned by pugs. The adorable Pug Hugs is going to make you so happy! You can see more information over at the Newton’s Nook Designs blog!
These little pug images are just too cute and I just love the accessories that go with them. I chose to do a little bit of masking to put the birthday hat on the pug. I stamped the images onto watercolor paper and then colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers using some of the grays and added orange to his hat. I’m forever needing cards that are more appropriate for boys and I love that this set could be for anyone on your list. Once colored, I cut the image out using a stitched circle die and then I added in this orange polka dot banner and stamped the sentiment right onto the card base. It still needed a little something so I added Baker’s Twine to coordinate with the base.

Love the shading you get with your Zig Markers on the pug and his birthday hat! I also wanted to say thank you for mentioning how great this set could be for masculine cards, because I struggle with images for those too and hadn’t thought of that, but your card would be perfect for anyone of any gender or age!
