Passion for Promarkers - Furry Friends...

I won at Creative Craft Cottage!

This card came in the Top 3 at Ooh La La Creations!

Good morning, dear Blogger buddies and a Happy Tuesday to you all! Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers.  This week it's the lovely Shelly in the hostess chair and she's chosen a theme of 'Furry Friends', so if it's cute and furry, or even not so cute and furry, we want to see it on your creations - from teddy bears to panda bears, cats to kittens, puppies to dogs...you get the drift?!

We are being sponsored by one of our newer sponsors this week, 2 Cute Ink, who are offering one lucky winner the choice of 3 digis from their store...

Don't forget, to be in with a chance of winning the prize, you MUST use your Letraset mediums and follow the challenge theme!
...I decided to make a card using the ever so cute Little Kitty from Sylvia Zet, which she kindly offered as a freebie on her blog HERE.  I have used this image quite a few times, but left off the little mouse this time...
...I used Dovecraft Garden Party and First Edition Kiss and Tell papers and a Marianne doily edge circle die.  Little Kitty was coloured using my Pro/Flexmarkers and a white Prismacolor pencil - want the colour list? Here it is :
Fur - Light Fawn, Champagne, Nutmeg, Spice
Hat - Blender, Tea Green, Pastel Green
Roses - Primrose, Canary, Tulip Yellow
Leaves - Apple, Grass, Forest Green
Shading on hat band and ribbon - Blender, Antique Pink, Ruby
 I paper pieced the hat band and ribbon with the Pink Polka Dot from the Makeup set of Another Play on Words and decoupaged the hat and flowers for a bit of dimension....I added a couple of clouds (because I can and because I love them!), buttons, pearls and a hand stamped sentiment, plus a touch of glitter to lift the image. The card was finished off inside with a printed insert and I was done!
Hope you like my Furry Friend inspiration and you can find even more from my talented teamies over on the Passion for Promarkers blog!
Crafty hugs,
Lisa x

Hi dear Lisa, how sweet is your card! The paper piecing is gorgeous and I agree about adding clouds, they look brilliant. Sadly the gorgeous sunshine of the bank holiday has turned to torrential rain this morning but I must admit it will save me watering the garden. Have a lovely week,hugs xx
