Karens Doodles 17th challenge


Time for a new challenge at Karen's Doodles UK and this week we have a colour theme - black, white and 1 other colour.  I always seem to end up using pink when I have one of these challenges to do, and I drifted into doing the same again!  Not very original of me, but I think it suits the image.

I've used the lovely Princess Kitty image which is available from Karen's Doodles here, and coloured her with promarkers with some touches of silver gel pen and sakura clear stardust pen.  I'm not all that happy with my colouring on this one - it was too hot in my craft room and I'm not very good in the heat!  Also the photo makes it look like I haven't used any shading on the cat's fur at all, but I have, it's just not showing up.  I'm not sure what the papers are as I've had them for ages, they're possibly Dovecraft, cardstock is coredinations.  I've used my Nellie Snellen flower punch again, with a black Green Tara flower, and added black flat back pearl centres.  Finished off with some card candy dots that I've coloured to match with a promarker.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

Hi Lisa

fab card your right it does suit the image to have used the pink, funny the first colour I went with was red, and it would be again if the chall came up, I do like yellow with b/w
