Kitten in a Teacup

Hi everyone! Woot woot exciting news today! Today is the launch of the brand new Aurora Wings Challenge Blog and I am so excited to say that I am one of the new DT members :D You all know how much I love colouring these beauties up :) For my challenge card today I coloured a very hard image.. Kitten in a Teacup.

How adorable is this image!!! I coloured it up using the No Lines technique which was already a crazy idea... fur is hard enough right?! ;) Here are the copic colours that I used:

Fur: BV000, BV00, BV20, W1, W3, BV23, BV25, W5
Eyes: W9, Y35, Y38, E15, E18
Roses: R81, R83, R85, R89

Tea Cup: W0, W1, W3, Y35, Y38, E15, E18, Molotow Marker
Tea cup Roses: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29


The background was coloured with Sennelier's L'Aquarelle.

I'm thinking about doing a mini project class on this one over at www.kitandclowder.com What are your thoughts? :) Would you like to learn to do the fur?

Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope to see you all in the new challenge!
