Masculine Monday #46

Is anyone singing the song? 
You know which one I'm talking about.
I made this card this morning and now I can't stop singing
'Who let the dogs out, who, who?

Sorry if it's stuck in your head now.

I woke up this morning thinking
"Oh no, I forgot about Masculine Monday!!"
So I whipped into my craft room and stamped and masked out some
dogs from Tim Holtz.
I added some balloons because what's a birthday without balloons?
Next a quick sentiment and some balloon strings.
Now for the coloring ...
usually I can take a long time with this part - stressing over which
colors to use and where is the light coming from for shadows but....
because I had a small window of time to get this made, colored,
photographed and onto my blog, I went with really simple
coloring and not a lot of thought.

I grabbed my Prismacolors and used two colors per dog and balloon.
A lighter shade went on first and then a darker one in the areas for
shade and then I blended it all together with the lighter shade.

I used my white gel pen for some high lights on the balloons and
the noses.

That's it.
Pretty quick and easy when you don't second guess every decision.

Now if I could only stop singing that song!
