Watercolor and Alcohol Marker Techniques

I wanted to make a fun card for my girlfriends’ birthday and she’s a big dog lover.  I used Koi watercolors and my watercolor block that I made (I’ll link that video to the end) and colored it with blues and greens.  The block is 4 x 6 and I’ll cut it down to fit a card base after I’ve finished with the dog coloring.
The dog stamp is from Eureeka Stamps and the sentiment is from Stampendous and is called Dog Sayings.
I colored my dogs with Spectrum Noir markers and put the colors in the video.  I had thin washi tape and I ran a piece of it across the front of my card to fix a spot of ink that I accidentally put on it.  I also went around the edges of my white card base with the washi tape.  The card base is 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and I cut the dog piece down to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  I used a label bracket punch for my sentiment and put it on foam tape then laid it on the washi tape on the front of the card.  Then I put foam tape behind the dog images and attached it to my base.  I thought it came out pretty frisky and hope you did as well.
