Top Dog Dies and Zentangle

Hello Everyone!

Have you noticed the growing trend of Zentangle?  I have been wanting to give it a try for months now and finally did using the negative space of one of my new Top Dog Dies from the Dog Days #2 set.

I just fell in love with this sweet Scottie dog and thought he would be perfect for this sentiment.  I used the negative die to trace the image on a piece of white cs.  I hand drew a collar; I then divided the dog up into sections to do my doodling or "zentangle". Once I was done filling in all of the space, I die cut the image out. 
The Vintage A2 Mat die was the perfect die cut to mount the Scottie on.  I used a fun sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Valentine Critters Stamp Set and heat embossed it on vellum.
For a complete tutorial with photos, check out the Top Dog Dies Blog.  
I used the versatile sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch-

I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is 'Anything Goes' this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
