I've just about been dying to share this happy news -- I'm joining Sprinkle and the gang as the newest member of the The Cat Pack, a.k.a. The Cat's Pajamas design team! Alma (TCP owner) has a little announcement over on her blog, too -- hope you'll check it out!
And since I couldn't let one more minute go by without trying on my swanky new watermark, I put together this last-minute number for the current TCP Tuesday challenge, hosted by Leigh O'Brien:
The image and sentiment are from Ewe Complete Me. I used one of the TCP CutUps dies, Circus Panels, for the base part of my banners. I just cut them in half, then stitched traditional triangular pennants on top.
I colored primarily with Copics, then added the grass with Prismacolor pencils. Here's a closer look:
I've always thought that the stippled-style shading looks really fun and decided to give it a go here. I have no idea if there's a "proper" technique, but little marker dots in a few different shades of light blue-greens, warm grays and even a light blue-violet seemed a good place to start..
Thanks for sharing my happy news! Meow ;)
