My Take on a Sketch

If you follow my blog, you will know that I usually not only use a sketch as a guide, I take it very literally.  Lately I have been spreading my wings a bit and doing more loose translations of sketches.  I guess I am finally, after all these years, being able to think outside the box.
When I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday, I knew what image I wanted to use and how to use it.
This adorable puppy is a digital image you can find at Daydream Designs.  Katlyn Traxler created him and he is just too cute.  I used a textured Kraft cardstock and very lightly swiped a distress ink pad over the cardstock in order to add a little bit of color, giving it the look of fur.
Paper pieced the neck scarf and heart and then added liquid glaze to the heart.
Okay, now the sketch that I used:
 I finished my Valentines !!  I have a few more to share with you.  I hope you have been able to pick up a few ideas.
Thanks for looking.
