The image I've used is a freebie offered in Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine. This magazine usually contains a double spread of digi images that you can photocopy or scan and then use at will. I just couldn't resist this cat - his expression is just priceless!
As usual, I used Copic markers to colour the image and Basic Grey papers. But I also used the Copics to colour all of the embellishments - the taupe rik-rak was actually an ugly shade of red so I turned it over and coloured it to match the kitty; the gold ribbon started out white; and the pearls were off-white. I am a major advocate of Copic markers because of their versatility and usefulness (no, I don't work for Copic but if they want to send me any free markers ... LOL).
Anyway, have a wonderful first day of 2011! Here's wishing everyone a creative year full of fun!
