This is one of the SU sets I got at my workshop, called Peace Within. I love cats, so I had been eyeing this one for a while. I particularly love orange cats, so I colored my kitty orange. This is the second one I did, as I colored the orchids on my first one purple. Then I decided I wanted to use that (retired) DP, so I did it over with pink orchids. I stamped the image in Palette Noir and used CO-pics to color it. Still need lots more practice with those things...I did discover that Neenah Solar White was better than Gina K for blending, too bad it's so darned expensive. I need to order some of the Copic CS (even MORE expensive) and see how I like that. But I guess if you're going to spend more than $6 per marker, you'd better be prepared to spend a little on paper. Insanity! Oozak.com has better deals on that stuff though. I'm still working with the markers I got for Christmas. But my birthday, anniversary, and Mother's Day are all coming up...
I used Nesties for the image and layer. Colors are Apricot Appeal (ret.), Tempting Turquoise, and Rose Red. Card base is PTI white. Thanks for stopping by today!
