Ombre Kitty


As I was colouring up this fun kitty from The New Nice from The Cat's Pajamas I thought, hmm, I could colour that stack ombre style.  Lighter to deeper in pigment, then I thought, another hmm, I could make the whole card this design!  So I went looking for some black and white paper to colour up too.  I found this older sheet from SU to use as the background. 


It's pretty easy to do, I started by colouring with a Y11 copic toward the top of the patterned paper sheet, then  added Y13, Y15, Y17, Y19 as I went further down.  It gives you that ombre style.  Cool look isn't it?  And amazingly there's a challenge at Moxie Fab World for Ombre too!  

The TCP Challenge this week is using neutrals and one other colour, and only 2 layers not including the base...so it's a bit challenging for a layering girl like me!


Some sparkly velvet, twine, buttons and faceted gems for some fun pops of colour!
