A Kitten with Cake - two of my favourite things!

I've been playing with my new Sugar Nellie Furry Friends images this week.  I'm not sure which of the new set is my favourite, so I'm working my way through colouring them all!

I am also still trying to persevere with the Inktense pencils but I am itching to get back to either copics or DI reinker painting, and I am having to force myself to stick with the pencils for practice.

I've tried a new watercolour paper which I thought would be perfect for printing digis because it's a bit thinner than my usual watercolour paper to run through the printer without jamming, but unfortunately I don't think it likes my printer ink very much!  I'll have to try the paper with some rubber inked with Stazon instead, but I think I'm going to have to revert back to my beloved Langton again.

I've popped in some clouds, and this time the template is courtesy of my lovely blogpal Squirrel, who sent me a great little sticky note set in the shape of clouds.  Beacause they're sticky notes, you can stick the cloud down while you chalk around it, and then lift up the template without any residue or mark on the image. Thanks honey! :0)

These stamps are so cute and you've coloured him beautifully. I have seven kinds of trouble trying to get card to go through my Epson printer but like you, I find Langton the best for watercolouring. Hugs, Tracey x

Love this, your colouring looks gorgeous! I like the Langton paper for DIs, but just wish it was a bit whiter... I'm so used to the bright white copic paper! Hugs, Lisa x

Gorgeous card as always. My 300gsm watercolor card will not go through my printer. I change my ink in preferences to draft. Print the image in the middle of a piece of cheap copy paper. I then cut a piece of my water colour card and put it over the image and secure with a piece of DSided tape on the unerneath. Run it through the printer again and it goes straight through. Passed onto me from Pops. Works every time.
Hugs, Carol S.xx
