Kitty Card!

Today the Impression Obsession Team is showing off cards to just say Hello! You can always play along with our Challenges, find all the details on the IO BlogSee what all the ladies created this week:
 The expression on the little cat is too darling... looks like he would be trouble! And the expression on the Momma cat looks like she is resigned to just dealing with her little trouble maker! Of course you know I love the kitty cats and was thrilled to see this image in the new release. A great image just to say hello to another kitty person! 
 Here are the Copics I used to color the image. I know the colors are not traditional kitty colors but I wanted them to stand out from each other and try some different colors out for fur.
With the shading provided in the image these are much easier to color, rather than having just an open space with no hairs/shading. Not an artist here... so it's a always a big help to me when I color if the real artist (Gail Green created this image) gives me some hints or guidelines to suggest darker and lighter areas for my colors. The cats are a larger image, so just simply framed and added a few mats, keeping the embellishments to a minimum on this one. Finished card size is an A2.
