Impression Obsession Winter Release + My Childhood Pet

HAPPY MONDAY (said no one ever!)

I'm here with a no-line watercolor of one of the sweetest images I've ever seen in my LIFE from the new Impression Obsession winter release, which you can see here.

I had such a wonderful, peaceful time painting this sweet image - and even though I did her ears darker, I colored her to look like my beloved childhood pet - a golden retreiver names Tzu Hsi. She was not the brightest dog on the planet, but I'm quite certain she was the sweetest.

I stamped her first in Fadeout Ink on this watercolor paper, and then painted her with Daniel Smith Watercolors. I stamped the sentiment from this set in Nocturne, matted it on Black Onyx Cardstock and put it on a Desert Storm card base. Don't you love her? MORE?
