I've purchased enough stamps to last me 100 years.
And maybe a few more for luck.
Then, to make the most of my new stamps, I signed up for one of the Kit & Clowder colouring classes at the weekend.
Of course then I needed some new copic colour combos to practice my colouring.
I'm expecting a call from my credit card company any day to ask if my Amex has been stolen.
Anyway, I've actually used a recent purchase on today's card.
It's one of my first CC Designs.
And I kinda like them! (oh dear!)
Despite my mission to focus on the colouring, unfortunately I made a bit of a boo-boo on this image. I coloured the girlie first, but it was only when I coloured the cat that I realised that the 'flower' in her hair was actually the moggie's left paw. The trouble was that I'd already coloured it bright red.
Mid-colour, I fessed up to the lovely Squirrel, who suggested that I pop a bandage on the red paw. Instead opted to darken up the rest of the kitty so that I could colour over the red in dark brown. Hopefully it doesn't have too much of a red tinge to it now, but it does merge into her brown hair a bit.
I was pleased to see that it's not just me who had issues with this image though, as 2 days ago I took solace in reading that Squirrel had problems of her own with it!
And yes, I had also coloured the mistletoe as holly as she did.
But as Squirrel said, who has ever seen prickly mistletoe?
Anyhoo, this project is to support the challenge at As You Like It Challenge which is to showcase your favourite type of Christmas card, modern or traditional. I've opted for a modern image, but I guess my chosen red and green colours are fairly traditional! However, it's cute and therefore modern for me all the way.
Here's a close up of the image (and the troublesome paw). I must say that this image does remind me of myself and my furbaby Pickle!
Despite my futile attempts at trying to persuade her otherwise, she's not very keen on snuggles. This is almost exactly the pose she's mastered when I scoop her up.
