The Paris Collection

Sharing today one of Julia Spiri's past images from The Paris Collection, Oh, La La!!

You can find her at the store

I've used Paris Girl and Dog. Just love Afghan Hounds. A friend of my Mum's used to have one and I remember him just popping his head on the windowsill and looking in. He was a bit of a devil to and hated going to the kennels, so much so that even if she walked him down the same road he would sit at the top and refuse to move. Not easy to shift an Afghan if he doesn't want to move!!
I've gone a bit sepia with this colouring for the first time, think it turned out OK.

Coloured with copics all sepia tones
comination of:
E49, E47, E43, E41, E40, E44

Background papers Dovecraft. 
Flowers from my crafty stash.
