AYLI (DT) Skin/Fur Colour Combo

Morning all.  Today I am feeling pawly and a bit ruff ......

It's the start of a new challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT and the theme for this fortnight is your favourite colour combination for skin or fur.  

I tend to colour far more critters than I do human beans, and over time I have discovered that my favourite combination of Distress Inks for a golden fur colour is a base coat of Scattered Straw, washed over with Tea Dye, and Brushed Corduroy for shading.  If I am feeling particularly brave I will use Walnut Stain for darker areas, and on a particularly courageous day, Black Soot might make an appearance.  Another combination is a very simple Antique Linen/Frayed Burlap pairing, but the golden theme seems to prevail in my world!

as you can see, the little dog is peeking through the window, but what on earth is
he standing on?

what a cheeky pooch!

For this make I have used
Doodlebug pawprint paper
and of course
Distress Inks (ReInkers)

You do awesome with whatever colors you chose to use. This card is too cute and I love how it all comes together! I totally expected to see that the peeking dog was stepping on another dog.
