Valentine ATC in the succulents!

I got to looking up other vintage embroidery patterns, and came upon this little scotty dog who was so adorable...I used his image to make an ATC! I decided there was no way to actually make him black and show his eyes and other features as they should be, so I drew him out a little darker than the rest of the image. The flower, ribbon, and hat are colored in with Sharpies, and over the top of the more red color I used a sparkly shiny glue to give some sheen and shimmer. I don't think I am done with it yet, but when I am, I plan on sending it to my BIL and SIL in Louisiana...and their sweet litle Scotty dog named Finnigan!

He is just too cute! I think it makes perfect sense not to color him in. He still looks plenty scotty-ish. And cute!
