Happy Purr Day - Colour Crazy Challenge for the 26th of October, 2018

Well this is my last Guest Designer month at Colour Crazy Challenge, unless they want to keep me on! It has been an awesome three months - if I had had more time, I would have taken advantage of all the amazing stamps that are available from some incredible designers. But unfortunately, time is not something that I have a lot of at the moment.

So this week, we are kindly sponsored by "Polkadoodles" and as usual, the theme is ANYTHING GOES!
I have used "Happy Purr-Day Cat" to make my card:

I digitally printed the stamps on to X-Press It Blending Card, then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out.
I then coloured with the following Copics Markers:
  • fur: BV000, BV00, BV20, W1, W2, W4
  • crown: Y00, YR31, Y17, E23
  • cupcake: RV63, RV66, E31, E33, E35, RV13, RV17, RV19
  • background: BG0000, BG10, BG01
  • sentiment: BG10, BG01
I adhered the coloured image and sentiment using double-sided tape on to a Birthday embossed card from Fundamentals (we buy them from Spotlight here in Australia).

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

I have tried to follow Alyce's instructions in her class - All About Animals for the fur of a Persian kitty, similar to Alyce's own sweet kitty! You can sign up for the class on Kit and Clowder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #92 - Always Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread Challenge #79 - Anything Goes

Here is the card again on a side angle - it seems to pick up the light better!

Thanks for looking!
