House Mouse Challenge #23 Valentines

I was waiting for a Valentine's Day challenge from the House Mouse team. One of my favorites. A fun challenge and the design team cards were amazing. I keep trying to improve my photos and they don't seem to get much better. I will keep working on it. I do not have a Valentine theme HM stamp :-( so I had to make a modification to "Are We There Yet?". I really enjoyed coloring this and actually colored two images - one with a grey dog and one with a brown dog. I think with each challenge I learn a little more about color blending. For this card, I colored the HM stamp with Copic Markers and I will list at the bottom my colors. From The Paper Source - chocolate brown paper. From Stampin' Up - Kiwi Kiss, Raspberry Tart
Designer Series paper, and the Rhinestone Brad. From MJ Trimmings - rick rack. From Michaels - flowers. Finally - Stickles on the heart.
Copic Markers:
Grass, Fishing Rod, and Leaves: G99, YG01, C3, E43, E33
Dog: E57, E43, E53, YR24, E33
Brown Mice: E57, E43, E54, E33
Grey Mice: C1, C3

Well, I saw both the brown dog and the grey dog. I like the grey one the best. I really like the way you altered the stamp to make it work for Valentine's Day, especially since your Labs are clearly so important in your life. Thanks for sharing the exact colors you used - I need to go get some Copics and start to color it up.
