Today I did some embossing,  yeah! I don't do it very often.  During a collage course a few years back, I can remember my teacher saying I always do narrative art, very rarely decorative.  In other words, not much very good with just patterns or pretty, I need to tell a story, need to use something, anything to tell a story..  So, what does that have to do with today's card?  I could use the embosser because this poodle, from Ike's World, called "Toy Poodle" needed curly fur. lol.

To get the poodle's fur, I printed and fussy cut the image first, then I ran it through a grid embossing folder and then again with a circle embossing folder.  Next came same bashing of the patterns with a shaping tool to give the patterns a more un-uniformed look.  (is that a word?.)

Next, I coloured the image with copic colours, more shading than colouring.   Added some flowers, pearls lace and of course a little bow.
