GD Ivette - Challenge #24 Stitching - ANAKIN

Hello again!  Ivette here with you to share my challenge #24 piece.
I purposely used image #6 from the store because this past Monday, Feb. 17th, I lost one of my best friends.  A black Lab named Anakin.  He would have been 15 y.o. on April 7th.  I dedicate this project in his memory.  He left behind a Maltese, Chase and a white Shepherd, Leia.  He is sorely missed and my heart is broken...
I began with a gessoed 10x8 canvas, used my Distress Ink, Broken China for the background, sealed it with Mod Podge.  I used my Copic pens, gray tones and a Copic Multiliner.
 I used vellum paper to cut out his wings with Tim Holtz's Layered Angel Wings die.  A halo created with thin gold wire.   
Jolee's white doves added to the sides of his name which is from TH's Newsprint Alphas.
I used ribbon with paw prints and stitched it down along the bottom of the frame using burgundy thread. A cloud with plastic doves I had laying around.  A tennis ball by his foot is from Jolee's Stickers. I finished the canvas by adding TH's Corners which I colored black with my Copic pen.
Hope you play along with us on Fitztown's current challenge.
In Memory of my beloved Friend, Anakin...
May the force be with you...
