Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop



I had colored a family of cats with a different project idea in mind. That idea hasn't come together quite like I want it to (yet), but I couldn't abandon this Siamese, which was my favorite. Here, he sits peacefully in the snowdrifts enjoying his white Christmas.



The background is dry embossed, and the raised areas are colored with a white gel pen and brushed with a clear Wink of Stella pen. The image, from Newton's Holiday Mischief is colored with Copics, and the scarf is brushed with clear Wink of Stella.
Simple, sweet, peaceful.




Have a beautiful Friday, and enjoy the upcoming weekend. 
Thanks for visiting with me here today!

Great background and I love how you got the soft greys of the blue-point siamese. I've been working on that, but have not mastered it yet.

Irene Grau said...

Your card is beautiful. But, honestly, it makes me a bit nostalgic. You colored Newton exactly like my baby, CheBa, a seal point Himalayan, who is no longer with us. Your coloring actually took my breath away at how much your kitty looks like her. Thank you for that. :-)
