Hello Kitty

We're talking skin and hair colour combos at As You Like It Challenge and we want you to share the colouring combos you use, in whatever colouring medium you prefer.  So whether you're crazy about Copics, a perfectionist with your pencils or a Wiz with your Watercolours, we want to know what your favourite combinations of skin or fur colours are.

I've opted for fur, since I prefer critters, and I've used my two 'go-to' combinations for grey and brown critters.  Using my Distress Ink reinkers to watercolour the kitties, the grey tabby is a mix of Hickory Smoke and Black Soot and the ginger tabby is a base of Antique Linen with Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo for the darker bits.  I also sometimes add some Gathered Twigs or Ground Espresso for extra contrast in the shadows, like under kitty's sign.

I've also 'grounded' my kitties with Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss, and given them a Weathered Wood shadow around the sky area.


This card was sent to a special little princess called Rosie for her 8th birthday, but it's safe to post now as she's safely  received it.  I wouldn't have wanted her to see it on my blog before her birthday and spoil the surprise.  ;0)

I'll be honest hunny .... THIS IS S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G! And I can say that, hand on heart, because I nicked it from Rosie so I can gaze at it every single day. It's truly a work of art. Xxxxx
