This cute little kitty was pretty quick to color... actually I didn't color the kitty at all, opting to leave the kitty white. I did add shading around the kitty edges so the white would be a little more pronounced... but it does not show that very well in the picture.
Here are the Copic Markers I used. I used BG10 to add halo around the image, to help the white of the cat and the fish bones pop out. The image was trimmed out with an oval nestie... using a Copic to color the red border. I stamped a second image, cutting out the hat and scarf to use to pop over the original.
I used dimensional silicone to adhere the hat and scarf. A white gel pen around the edges for some faux stitching on the blue card stock. I Martha Border found it's way into the mix too. The finished card is oversized... slightly larger than 5x7. An Ice White Viva Pearl Pen adds an extra touch to the Christmas hat.
