Sophie and Kitty

      You already know that I'm cat crazy so any image which has a kitty in it is going to speak to my heart.  This is my latest DT card for Conie Fong and the image is called "Sophie and Kitty."  Isn't she adorable with her red hair and calico kitten?

     I love the way alcohol markers blend to give shadows and depth.  Nothing else I use (pencils, chalks, water colors, or paint pens) gives the same effect so they have become my favorite way to color.  I also wanted the image to pop so I chose a black background and a really CAS design.  All I did was die cut the image and put it right on the background.

    I did challenge myself a bit when I decided to do this all in oranges and yellows, my 2 least favorite colors (except for fall cards!)  Despite not being a fan of those colors, I am rather pleased with the way this turned out.  :-D

What a cutie ! Both of them, the girl and the kitty. Your colouring is amazing and I love this lace border die cut. It really pops up beautifully over the black card. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Uniko.
