Mission Impossible

I was recently set a little challenge by the lovely Sue of Tanglemouse Cards to colour this little critter.  And boy, it was a challenge!  Considering I only really needed brown, this guy took me hours to paint. I tried to define the bristles of his coat, but think he ended up looking quite fluffy rather than prickly.  He looks like he's been fluffed up with a hair-drier!

But yes, he's cute, so I love him.  Thanks for the challenge sweetie!

And because I spent so long painting him, he became the centrepiece of my card with a very CAS layout using a stitched border die and a trio of brown pearls.

That's all folks!

Annette, you already know how much I love him! Your colour work is absolutely stunning, he looks absolutely beautiful and aside from your expert colouring, I love the little touches of glossy accents on the little bee's wings and goggles. Your attention to detail in the colouring is just wonderful and I totally love this. Of course, I was never in any doubt you would make a fabulous job of colouring him - you are a genius!
