Ted's Second Birthday

Hi folks :) Have a lovely commission once a year to make birthday cards for a friend's & friend's daughter's dogs :) They are called Ted and Esmae and are french bulldogs. (They also have Bert who is the pug I make cards for too). In this post I will show you Ted's card and next post I will do Esmae's.

I did a pale line drawing of the two dogs and added text to the topper on the PC and then printed it out. Then I used Gansai Tambi Watercolours to paint the two dogs and included some gold to add highlights.  The font is Neuropolitical.

I mat and layered it onto a brown pearlescent card stock and then a white 17 x 17cm blank.  I scanned my dog painting into the computer, not sure whether I should try and do a good print of it to sell?

I actually did two paintings of it, this one I used less traditional colours  and let the watercolours do more random things! I then scanned this and used it as a background inside the card on the area to write a message. 


  1. its so nice card!
    and painting is gorgeous!

  2. Oh they are both fabulous Annabel! of course you should sell them as prints! You are such an inspiration!
